Preschoolers and the Pledge

Graduation today. That milestone of life, so important, so life-changing it requires cupcakes to celebrate.

That’s right, I’m talking about preschool graduation!

Although it may not have the significance of high school or college graduation, we are very proud of Timothy’s accomplishments during his preschool years. And today’s graduation was a whole lot of fun! Special thanks go out to his teachers.

I especially enjoyed the pledge of allegiance recited by the children. Maybe NBC could use this version of the pledge in the future, this time without omitting “under God” and “indivisible”:

Might just be one of the most enthusiastic recitations I’ve ever heard!

  1. Awesome! I’d freshly press this if I were calling the shots! Congratulations to Tim!

    • That’s high praise. Thanks!

      We’re pretty proud of Timothy. But we didn’t make as big a deal of it as some of the other parents. Right now we’re just trying to keep him focused on and excited about Kindergarten.

    Kudos to the teacher who taught them every word! God, liberty and justice–a good launch to their education.

    If Tim is like your brother (and he usually is), he’ll always be more excited about the next step than the last one. You won’t have to work to keep him focused on what’s ahead.

    I would have loved to witness this. I’m sure Tim was whole-heartedly participating. And when his first day of kindergarten arrives, I predict he’ll be very excited!

    • He definitely participated. I’ve heard him recite it a couple times recently, and I was impressed at how well he recited the pledge. I gather that he’s been learning it both at preschool and at Gopher Buddies.
