Apples for the Teacher

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!

    ALSO where did you get your baby wrap sling? I need to figure this out!
