Above is Maia in front of the house after her promotion ceremony. We were a little surprised about the mortar boards! I think it makes Maia look very old.
Maia got a little graduation money from her adoptive local grandparents (Poppy Dave and Grammy Kathy), and she used it to get her and Eva's faces painted at the zoo.
To be honest, kindergarten promotion seemed a little over-the-top for us. But it was fun, and the kids enjoyed preparing for it, and family enjoyed attending too. It really does kind of mark a milestone for Maia, as in the fall she'll have full-day school, which I, find myself unprepared to embrace. Imagine going so long without seeing her all day!!!
