and it is officially...now...OVER!
Woot, woot, wooooooot!
Today was Miss O's awards day & the last official day of school!
Both kids took gifts today to thank their teachers for all the love & learning they received this year. I cannot say enough about how happy we've been with all the teachers we had, they ALL rocked out! (and let me tell you, it takes having a stinky one to make you EXTRA appreciative of the great ones your child is placed with)...
Big O had three teachers this year in 5th grade, so I used these cute metal containers that I found at Wal-Mart & the letters that I got from Marilyn on Etsy & this is how they turned out...
Not bad, huh?!! ;)
and I was in charge of putting together Miss O's teacher's gift....& I was tickled to do it...back when I taught 2nd grade, her oldest daughter (who is DRIVING now, mercy) was in 2nd grade & she was a stay at home mom like me. I was thrilled to death to find out that Miss O was going to have her this year, I always enjoyed working with her back when I was teaching!
Anyway, here' s a shot before I finished filling it up...I added a few more goodies in there before taking this fun RELAXing themed tub to her...
I liked this one so well, I decided to do another one for a wedding gift that I needed to buy...a GREAT deal on a nice container ($19.50 for container & letter) & then fill it with some nice bath towels & candles for the newlyweds. It will make a really pretty gifty. :)
Well, I think the rain is stopping & the kids are wanting to play outside...SO...I'll be back to share more later.
Hope everyone has a great Wednesday!
