Teacher Appreciation Week Gift Ideas

.The first day of teacher appreciation week the kids were supposed to write letters/cards to their teacher. Each class also “adopted” a specials teacher or a faculty member. Ryan’s letter started like this… I told him that he probably shouldn’t write about his teacher being irate. So he erased it and this is what the […]

Teacher Gifts: Thank You For Bringing Out the Creative Juices In Me

.During teacher appreciation week I put together a few fun little gifts.  One of which included this one… “Thank you for bringing out the creative juices in me!” I purchased the insulated cups at Kohls and each one had the teacher’s initial on it.

Our Family Through Ryan’s Eyes

.Today, Ryan drew a picture of himself wearing headphones. And then he asked for more paper so he could draw more of his family. He drew mommy… He drew daddy… He drew Owen, but as he explained, he didn’t give him hair because he’s our baby still.  And no glasses either because he said he […]
