Because he is 4.
He goes to preschool part-time at the local High School. They have a program where the Juniors and Seniors, along with real teachers, host a preschool as part of the curriculum for the High Schoolers.
They had that at my High School too. I went to preschool at my High School. My sister participated as a Junior and Senior.
Tomorrow he is having a graduation. I find it amusing because he will have another preschool graduation next year. His birthday is too late in the year for him to go to Kindergarten next year, so he will have another full year of preschool.
He is very excited about the graduation.
Partly because the previous 2 weeks were centered around his sister with her ballet recital rehearsals, the recital and then her birthday, which consisted of 2 parties and lasted a full week.
This week, it's all about him.
His graduation is at 9:30 and lasts until 11:00 tomorrow morning. I say, you know I love that child if I am going to get up and leave the house at 8:00 am to go somewhere noisy with screaming children!
My mom and I are going out for that and then taking him to lunch.
You would probably think that a 4 year old boy would want to go to McDonald's, Chuck E Cheese or even maybe Red Robin for lunch.
Not this one. Where does he want to go?
Panera. For broccoli cheese soup.
