Whatever kind of graduation it may be it is an exciting time because it means that change is about to happen. Change is good right? Well sometimes anyway. My dear friend Alana invited me to her son Jatan's preschool graduation. Here he is as a baby. He was born my first year in Grenada soon after I arrived. Where has the time gone?
What's not to love about him?
Like most things in Grenada it started late. I was waiting close to an hour before it ever started.
I could hardly get a smile out of his scared, shy self.
He kept his lips like this the entire time.
I wanted to get a picture of him walking in but I never saw him till after he was passed because he was crammed up against the person in front of him!
He kept peering back over the benches and I actually caught him before he quick turned away.
Receiving his diploma
..and a gift
FINALLY a smile after it was over
...and now it is off to my favorite school in Greenz....LABORIE! Go Jatan....have a great first year in Kindergarten!
Alana's older son also graduated this year from primary school and is now headed to secondary school.
Great work Joshim...do your best at Wesley College.
typical confusion between these two!
There was also awards for all the students for character qualities or things they achieved over the school year.
My dear nephew David beaming!
Keondre asked if he could read something at the graduation. It was a sweet thank you to all those that impacted their lives through school.
Mr. Coutain even got one for the "Most Awesome Principal." He will be missed in that school.
Here are the graduates.

I saw a little girl beaming as she walked down the road towards me. Her mother had sewed her a dress with my leftover fabric and we happened to both wear them for the first time last night!
Rebecca and I
In less than a week I will be seeing most of you stateside please the Lord.
