Crew went ahead and graduated from Kindergarten.
There wasn’t a school-sponsored graduation, so some of the moms put together an after school graduation ceremony.
This was the only year that Blake and Crew will be at the same school together. Kindergarten started later in the morning than the rest of the grades, except on Wednesdays. Blake walked Crew to kindergarten every Wednesday morning and since they were usually running late, Blake made up the “fire run” to get them to school on time. They pumped their arms and raced their feet, pretending to have to escape from a fire. The fire run was made up both to get warm on cold mornings and to gain speed. I love that Blake thought of a clever, fun way to get Crew moving instead of just demanding him to walk faster. Today was their very last fire run before Blake moves on to middle school.
