After much yelling (me), crying (her), some fun and lots of learning, Princess Sparkley finished Kindergarten Friday. Since she's homeschooled through a virtual school program, there wasn't a whole lot of pomp and circumstance. So I had her wear Buddy's preschool graduation cap, we went swimming at the city pool for dollar night, and we went for ice cream downtown.
She's learned to add, subtract, count money, measure. She's learned about all the continents, lots of countries and a bunch of American history. She's learned about liquids, solids and gases as well as plants and animals. We've read lots of stories, answered lots of questions, drawn lots of pictures. But the most exciting, to me, and probably her, she's learned to read. I have a kindergarten graduate, a kid who reads. Crazy!
