Preschool Graduation/Continuation

So I thought this would be our final preschool graduation, but after doing 7 years of preschool over the past 8 years we are actually going to add one more year on for Coppelia. Nothing wrong with a little extra preschool, probably we could all do with a little more time. And while the school…
