Random Photo Thread: The Sequel

How adorable! Congrats, Tyler!

Yeah, I probably would have choked up a bit too, Cheryl!

Great photo!

Congratulations Tyler!!!

I got a little teary just hearing about it. Those little caps are even with the chairs...flash forward 12 years and take another picture then Cheryl.
Do you think Tyler will be tall Cheryl? My boys Dad was only 5'9" and I'm 5'8" When they both grew to be well over 6' I used to say I had to home grow them to get a tall man.

So cute, Cheryl! The wee ones are so short you see just caps above the chair backs for most of them. Sweet. Congrats. Now on to bigger and better things...like first grade.

Do they still use The Letter People program in kindergarten? They were popular when our kids were in k-garten in 1986-87. Towards the end of the year they had a wedding between Mr. Q and Miss U. Our son got to be Mr. Q, "Mr. Quiet", even though he was anything BUT quiet! To this day I refer to the waffle recipe that uses club soda as "Wonderful Waffles" because Miss Cindy made waffles with the class as that letter's learning tool.

Now that sounds like a teacher who looks for materials that cost almost next to nothing so the little ones can learn. Very inventive of her.

Thank you so much, ladies! It was certainly a day to remember. My daughter bought Tyler an adult sized T-shirt that says "Class of 2027" and will be taking his picture every year wearing that enormous shirt, starting with this year. It will be fun to look back on someday. (your comment below reminded me of that, Kay!)

Cute story, CG! Kindergarten has changed so much over the years - the Letter People learning is done in pre-schools now. Kindergarten is the new 1st grade. Most of the kids in Kindergarten at Tyler's school are reading at least at 1st grade level, some at 2nd grade level. I was amazed at how much he's learned this year, on so many different subjects - math, science, etc.

They must have gotten a recessive gene in there somewhere, Kay! Yep, Tyler's going to be a tall one, like his dad. He's always been taller than most kids his age and will probably be taller than me (5'4") by the time he's 9 or 10. My SIL is a big and burly 6'3", he works out a lot and is just, well, a BIG guy.

Funny story - yesterday my SIL was on duty but was able to come in for most of Tyler's graduation. He had his 25 pounds of cop gear he has to carry stuffed in his vest, on his belt and in his pockets. A little 3 year old boy nearby saw him and told his mom "Look, mama! A transformer!"

Times sure have changed. The first graduation that was observed when I was in school was high school. All the rest you just moved up a grade and at certain points usually changed changed schools, even from elementary to junior high, and from there to high school. No special observances.

Yes they have, Rick! Friends and I were just talking about this yesterday. Many, if not most schools now have Kindergarten graduation (some schools call it 'promotion') ceremonies, at least in California. I too only recall HS graduations back then.

I remember parts of Kindergarten back in 1960, and it was little more than napping, playing, coloring, and snacks. Nothing at all like the curriculums nowadays.

What a cute and clever idea for Tyler!
Loved the Transformer Daddy story!
