Q & U got MARRIED!

I know that school was out as of yesterday, (sniff, sniff--my boy is done with his first year of SCHOOL!) (Can you believe it?!?!?!!) but I wanted to post about a few events he had the last few weeks of school......

Nolan has the BEST Kindergarten teacher EVER!! She is just AWESOME! Words cannot describe how I feel about N's teacher! She is a non-stop ball of pure energy! Good thing too, cause she only had 4 girls in her class this year--the rest were BOYS. And by boys, I mean BOYS! 100% pure BOY.
Anyhow--one of the "big" things Mrs. H does is a Q&U wedding. You know--the letters? Q & U? Well, you see...they never go anywhere without each in quilt, quick, and quack. See? Q&U are best friends and they're married for life. I think this is an AWESOME teaching tool for the kids. Whenever they are reading, they will know when they see qu, how it sounds.

I know you are laughing at this point, but it's Kindergarten for cryin' out loud. And it's cute. And Kindergarten is supposed to be cute. ; ) Like this fellow......
The kids come to school dressed in their "finest" outfits and Mrs. H dresses them up even further by putting homemade vests and coats on them--complete with bow tie and top hats!

The room is decorated for a BIG Q&U wedding, complete with black trash bags over the chairs and paper flowers, etc.!!

And after the ceremony, which the Assistant Principal performed, the kids sang a sweet song......isn't it adorable?
The lovely bride and groom........
And then it was off to the reception! The adjoining classroom was decorated with cute tables and such...and we had cake and punch....isn't this just getting more adorable by the minute?

I was so excited to be able to share this with Nolan!!!

Q&U..sitting in a tree...k-i-s-s-i-n-g........(I'm sorry I could NOT resist that one!)



  1. Isn't Mrs. Harper the best!

  2. We do this too!!! They have wooden letters that are decorated to look like a bride and groom. Send out wedding announcements, have a wedding cake and a special luncheon for the parents to attend, dancing, bridesmaids and groomsmen (also decorated letters)and all the kids are asked to wear their "Sunday best" I love it!!! It's sooooo stinkin' cute!!!

  3. For sure, he is the cutest thing!!!

  4. Love it - Nolan is looking very handsome - as always!

  5. You know how I feel about Mrs. H- there's NO one as great as her. :) And awww, that wedding.. definatley one of my more favorite interning memories! And for the record, Mrs. H would jump all over you about that K-I-S-S-I-N-G business... because "there's none of that talk in Kindergarten!" Ha... :) Cute pics of Nolan! Love the top hat! :) they will make great wedding slide show pics one day!

  6. I remember when Kaelyn was in kindergarten and they also had a Q & U wedding. Kaelyn was picked to be Miss U and a little boy from her class was Mr. Q. Loved looking at all the pictures you posted. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I love this! You are right, that q & u's wedding is a great teaching tool. Nolan is soooo cute!


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one and treasure every word!
