School Photos + Preschool Graduation

The kids are currently wrapping up the last week of their summer preschool session, which reminded me that I haven't yet posted the school photos from this year or the photos from Ava's preschool graduation in May (they hold it before the summer session as not all the kids attend year-round).

They both look so old in these photos...especially Rylan!

Ava's preschool graduation ceremony was so sweet, and I definitely shed a few tears. Ava has been at Spanish House since she was 18 months old, with many of the same friends in her class each year, and it has truly become like a second family. 

Her teachers put together an adorable slideshow, which included some photos of the kids throughout the years, and then each student got up to give a presentation in Spanish before they got their "diplomas." 

We are so proud of our little preschool graduate!

Ava had the most wonderful teachers this year - Maestra Jasmine and Maestra Norma.

After we got home from the festivities, the significance of the graduation really hit Ava hard. The poor thing cried for nearly two hours while looking at a photo of her classmates, and I had to try my best to hold it together while comforting her. 

And now she starts Kindergarten in less than three weeks. It is all so very bittersweet.

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing instead. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; La Croix; reading; coffee; podcasts; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. I think that about sums it up.
