Last month, we all headed to SeaWorld for the kids’ field trip day! We were so happy that their classes went on the field trip on the same day which allowed us to make a day of it. Greg and I went as chaperones and drove down ourselves so we could stay a little later in the day.
With their classmates, they got to do two rides: Antarctica: Empire of the Penguins and Wild Arctic and see two shows: Clyde and Seamore’s Sea Lion High and One Ocean. The kids also touched the sting rays and watched the dolphins. We had never seen the sea lion show so that was something new and fun to experience. After their classes left, they rode the Shamu roller coaster twice before we headed home.
It was a hot and exhausting day, but it was educational and we all had so much fun! We chose not to renew our annual passes this year, so it was a perfect way to end our time with SeaWorld, for a little while at least.
Kenley has officially completed VPK (voluntary pre-kindergarten)! Her little graduation ceremony was held on Wednesday at the Orlando Repertory Theatre in downtown Orlando. It was our first time at the Orlando Rep and I have already decided that we’ll be back this year to see a show. It was so nice and super kid friendly.
The ceremony was at 1pm so it was just the three of us since Crosby was still at school. As a little gift, we got Kenley the Oh, the Places You’ll Go! book. I’m not sure I’ve ever read the book or it’s been quite a while since I have, so I got a little teary-eyed reading it to her before we headed into the ceremony.
The ceremony was quick and adorable. All of the graduates got to walk or roll across stage to get their diploma and their photo taken. Kenley was so nervous and was fidgeting with her hands and dress the whole time. All of the classes from the two campuses sang a little song together at the end to close the ceremony.
After visiting with her current teachers and former teachers, we headed out for a bite to eat and a drink with some friends. It was such a fun and bittersweet day. We’re so excited for the next step into kindergarten at a new school, but also so sad for her to leave the amazing school that we’ve been with for the last five years. We are so thankful for the amazing teachers, staff, and administrators that have made our experience there so great.
Kindergarten, here she comes!
