Homeschool Graduation

Today is the end of the year celebration  / achievement night / graduation for Big Bro and Little Bro at our homeschool co-op.

Since Big Bro has just completed his third year of the Montessori 3-6 cycle, and is the age to be in kindergarten, he will get to participate in the co-op kindergarten graduation, complete with a royal blue cap and gown...
Last year, since he attended a preschool program part time, he wore red.

What is nice is that for this end of the year celebration  / achievement night / graduation, is that each family got a table to put out a display of anything that they wanted to share with others.

Big Bro brought one of his favorite Lego creations, some items from the continents boxes, the binomial cube,  some of his favorite books, and his desert project. He wanted to be able to set up some pink tower and knobless cylinder extensions, but we decided against bringing them, as it would have taken a great deal of floor space.

Little Bro brought some of his artwork, some blocks, some of his favorite books, some sensorial and practical life works, and some of his projects as well...

They both decided to make posters about what they had learned.
Hard to believe that a school year has come and as of today, is completed.
Explained to the boys last night that we are going to take a mini summer break and then, we will do a "summer camp" of sorts....
Big Bro asked if we are going to use tents.
Little Bro was more into whether or not we would get to eat marshmallows, as he had heard about eating marshmallows while camping. To drive home this point, he got out a big bag of marshmallows and wanted to eat some right before going to bed...
Had to explain that summer camp is where you get to "learn about something new, play games, do cool things, go places, and have fun at the same time" to which Big Bro added,"Well, we already do that! I wanna use a tent"!
So, we might be cracking out their play tent and making some s'mores in the next few weeks.

Here are some photos from the end of the year celebration  / achievement night / graduation.
They had a fun time but were getting pretty tired near the end, as it went way past their bedtime.

If you get the chance, here is a link to Sue at The Homeschool Chick's cute cartoon depiction of
Homeschool Graduation.

Happy Graduation!

Happy Friday!

I think that you should totally use the tents for "summer camp"! How fun. :)

Blessings to you,

Thanks for the nice comment.
You are quite special yourself.
The boys, Dear Hubby, and I can't wait to see you and Grandad soon, too.
I emailed you some of the photos over the weekend of the graduation.
See you in a few weeks.
love, Colleen
