Today was the last graduation ceremony at our beloved preschool. I started the year assuming it was our last, not expecting to be expecting again, but a few weeks ago we learned that the school would be closing. Unfortunately, while we loved the small class size, it had become so small that it wasn't keeping itself afloat. We spent the past week working on a project with some classmates for the teachers who are now like family to us, after guiding preschoolers from our family off and (mostly) on for the past ten years. I'll be taking these plates in for the final finishing at the local paint your own pottery store, and hopefully the teachers will feel just a little how much they have meant to so many.
