preschool graduation celebration

This week included a special graduation celebration from preschool. The kiddos, teachers and therapists joined together at a local park for the "ceremony," yummy treats and playtime.

Maxwell has been at this developmental preschool for two years, and we have been very blessed with a wonderful educational team and amazing peers. Most of the students will move on to typical classes for kindergarten, and a few will be with Max at another school for specialized education (officially titled "Life Skills" but I am working to change that name).

Everyone has made such great progress...congratulations to all our buddies!!!

The highlights of the day were the graduation cap (the tassle in particular!) and the chocolate cake.

Max immediately took off running watching the tassle swing back and forth in front of his face. Then he realized it was making shadows too. So funny!

Congratulations Mighty Max on this great achievement...you amaze me each and every day! Watch out kindergarten, here we come!!! :)
