Kindergarten Graduate of 2010




Yes, it’s purely symbolic.
Yes, it’s kindergarten.
But I am proud nonetheless.

The tassel was hanging right smack down the middle of his face!

Josh, together with his fellow graduates (all seven of them), emceed the Summer Concert.  They took turns introducing the various numbers from the K1, K2, Nursery, and playgroup classes.  One of them would do the intro in English and the other would do the same intro in Mandarin.  They were pretty good –no nervousness, very self-assured and confident.  A couple of them even managed to sneak in a wolf whistle or two at the microphone after their turn at doing the intro, much to the audience’s amusement.

Here’s another one of Josh, together with his partner, introducing another number.Emcee2


I couldn’t get a good shot.  We were seated right smack in the middle of the very first row (yeah, prime seats!), but they were using the mike on the right side of the stage.  That’s why every single pic that I got of Josh was from an angle and partially obstructed by the microphone stand!  Out of consideration for the other people in the audience, I didn’t want to stand and move around, so I just pretty much shot from where we sat.  I will just have to wait for the school DVD, which will hopefully give us better angles.


Have a wonderful weekend!

What a sweet event they put together for you all. I love it. And so funny that every shot had either his tassel or the mike in his face. Ah well...

Awwwwww! That graduation ceremony may just be the cutest thing I've seen all day!

It's amazing how some parents lack the common courtesy of NOT standign up from their seats to take their kid's pictures. At my two eldest preschool grad ceremonies, the teachers kept telling parents to not block the aisle and for parents to take pictures from the sides of the room. Btw, I think it's great that Josh is not stage shy.

Oh my goodness, that is too sweet! Congrats to him :)

Congratulations on Josh's graduation!!! He looks adorable! Did you sit there the whole time having flash forwards of his high school graduation? It's all I could see when we sat through Cole and Bella's kindergarten graduation last month!

Josh is SO ridiculously cute. I can't even take that kind of sweetness. He is adorable!

Serline said...

Congratulations, Josh! Re: trying to be my kids' event photographer/videographer, I have done this several times, till I finally decided to give up and just enjoy the occasions. Nothing will be more satisfactory for the kids, than to see the smiles on their parents' faces and hear the applause.

AWWW...graduation...!!! He is such a brave boy! It must be pretty daunting to be up there on the stage, facing a sea of unfamiliar faces. Well Done!

Hannah said...
