Today is Mr. One's last day of kindergarten. He had such a wonderful year. We chose to send him to the school I taught at before becoming a stay at home mom. I shared an office with his teacher and consider her a friend as well as a colleague. It was fun to be in the classroom to support her and to see my oldest blossom. She has a gift for making the kids laugh and love learning. She has a passion for writing and science. The kids stretched to do their best, and met some high expectations. I had the privilege of helping out in his room, as well as subbing a few days for his teacher. Although there were almost twice as many boys as girls, they were such a mild mannered and kind group. I wish they could all stay together for first grade. I am so grateful he had such a good start to elementary school.
Here's what we put together as a little thank you from our family for Mr. One's teacher. I found the idea for the adorable apple mini oreos here. I put several in a small canning jar and tied it with some fun apple and owl fabric, and added a thank you from Mike and I and another from Mr. One himself. (Seriously, one of these days, I am actually going to take better pictures...)
I can't wait for our summer together as a family and a more relaxed schedule. More on our summer plans coming soon!
