Davis’ Graduation Party

There are so many kids Davis’ age at church that are graduating from Elementary school this year. So Megan, Laurie M, and I decided to throw them a graduation party.

I made them each a photo cupcake topper with their new school colors on it. I also brought balloons in all of the school colors so they would feel united and more grown up. I wanted Davis to know that he isn’t alone in how he’s feeling – they’re all growing up together.

Megan has such a fabulous backyard with plenty of space for the kids to play and run around. The party started with water cannons and the slip ‘n slide.

Megan’s neighbor has a bounce house and kindly let us use it. The gymnasts had so much fun in it doing their flips and bonding with each other.

Laurie M was in charge of the games and they had a blast! The object of the first game was to transfer the water in the first bucket to the last bucket while blindfolded.

Next, they had to fill a 2 liter water bottle (cut with a window in front) that was on a child’s head, to the line with a water gun while taking turns in their line.

Lisa and I watching all the fun.

They also had to put on a wet suit, life jacket, and goggles relay.

They ended the party with a huge water balloon fight.

Davis really got into it. {{giggle}}

I still can’t believe it’s summer already and my little guy will now be in Intermediate school. I have an appointment with the new principle next week. I’m hoping I’ll feel better about the whole experience after talking to him. {{fingers crossed}}
