Congratulations to Skibo!

Skibo went through what appears (to an outsider) to be an American Tradition.
Graduation at every possible phase.
We had a school program tonight, at his preschool, at which each year, 2, 3 and 4 years old, sang some songs and performed. It was very sweet, culminating in his class singing the pledge of allegiance (to the tune of Auld Lang Syne, which really unfortunately emphasises how ugly the rhythm is with the "under god" abomination added to it: it really destroys the poetry of it).
It was a lovely, sweet event. But seriously, do we want to have "graduation" from pre-kindergarten?
Next week, it's time for Boo to graduate from post-pre-kindergarten, i.e. 5K.

Yours, in favour of ceremony, but not in favour of dilution,
