Cam's 1st School Graduation - Week of July 29th

Cam's handmade graduation cap & personalized diploma
When Cam's parents were younger, they looked forward to two graduations- high school and college.  It seems that with the newer generation, there are multiple grad celebrations.  This week, Cameron attended his very first one!

Ms. Kathy and Ms. Sara giving Cam a super smooch!
Wellerwood Early Childhood Center has been Cam's school since he was 2 and 1/2 years old.  He had the benefit of working with several different teachers and therapists throughout his time there.  This past year, he was able to enter a Head Start program, eating lunch at school and learning different things to help him prepare for kindergarten.  Since Cameron is headed to the big "K", it was the last year he could attend Wellerwood and most unfortunately, the last year any kids would attend the school.  It is closing and Cam held the honor of being in the last "graduating" class.

The teachers at Wellerwood made the students go through the real deal, walking up the steps with their caps and receiving their official diploma. Don't be fooled by Cameron's fancy shirt- the tie is a part of his t-shirt!  An extra special tasty treat was created by the teachers using little debbie snack cakes and thin licorice ropes to mimic mini diplomas.

This memorable ceremony was attended by Oma, Chris and Jane.  Cam was so excited to show everyone his cap and diploma!   He rode the school bus home one last time from Wellerwood and there was quite a crowd to greet him at the end of the driveway! ~ Emma, Ms. Ann, Oma, Auntie Ronda, and Jane.

For Cameron's grad treat, he wanted
to help make some delicious banana bread with his sweet friend, Emma. The kids were official taste testers of the batter and even enjoyed eating the actual bread.

Happy 1st Graduation... of many more to come... for our Cam!
