one handed birthday

One week from tomorrow this kid is turning 5.
For real.
Everything is coming at me so fast. 
Next Wednesday he turns 5, graduates from preschool, and goes to Kindergarten orientation.
All in one day! 
If you don't hear from me on Thursday, I may have had an emotional breakdown. 
Today was his birthday snack day at preschool. 
For snacks I made "turtles" out of Ritz crackers, pretzels and blueberries.  The pieces were held in place with squeeze cheese. 
The treats were donut holes covered with candy melts and sprinkles.
He wasn't so sure about wearing the shirt because it wasn't his real birthday.
I totally blew it and didn't order enough Ninja Turtle plates and napkins for his birthday party and snack day so I hit up the Dollar Tree yesterday for these.

The most exciting part for Porter was drinking Sprite through licorice straws.  (Normally the kids only drink milk or water for snack, but on birthdays anything goes!) 
I can't believe they're all going to Kindergarten soon!
He's been with these same kids for two years, so they've really grown close. 
Happy pretend birthday, Porter!

I know what you're sayin', the 5th birthday, pre-k grad and then kindergarten orientation all about killed me. :( BUT, it's cute anyway. :)

I can't believe all 5 of the Miller kids are going to be 5 this year. =( It's going by way to fast. Hope your day was extra special Porter!!!
