Graduation is emotional. It doesn’t matter if it is college, high school or even preschool, graduation can be enough to move anyone to tears.
Aundrea and Matthew Smith were there when their daughter Charlee, 5, graduated from pre-kindergarten recently, Inside Edition reported.
Charlee’s big brother Derek, 8, went up to the graduate and told her he was so proud of her.

#feelgoodfriday Today my daughter graduated from Pre-K. After the ceremony my son walked up to her and gave her a hug. “I’m just so proud of you” he said. Then of course my daughter started crying. As we wiped away our tears, my husband asked her, “Pumpkin, why are you crying?” She responded, “I’m just so happy.” We are so blessed. ✨Tag someone below who is a blessing in your life. Let them know how much they mean to you. And if you can’t tag them call them, text them, or write them a letter. It’s important that we share joy. . . . #blackownedbusiness #blackboyjoy #blackgirlmagic #childrensbooks #teachersofig #teachersofinsta #children #education #privateschool #teachersofinstagram #educators #positiveblackimages #blackentrepreneur #blacklivesmatter #positivemovement #womenentrepreneurs #diversity #peopleofcolor

Derek was tearing up, then the tears flowed from Charlee.
Aundrea Smith said her husband asked Charlee, “Pumpkin, why are you crying?” She told her father, “I’m just so happy.”
"We are so blessed," Aundrea Smith told Inside Edition.
Aundrea Smith said she’s surprised at how both her children reacted that day.
"We are an emotional family; however, we were surprised that our son broke down in tears. Charlee admires Derek so much. She wants to do anything and everything he does and Derek is a great big brother. They definitely have their moments when they get on each other's nerves, but they are very close. They love each other so much," Aundrea Smith told Inside Edition.
