School starts TOMORROW!

Gasp!  How did this happen?  Sissy starts KINDERGARTEN tomorrow!  She went to bed tonight, like a kid on Christmas Eve - she can't wait!  And that makes me so happy...

Friday night was Meet the Teacher, and I was in my typical mode... I didn't want us to show up empty handed, but I've been even more swamped (overwhelmed?) than ever.  So... mr. fix-it was on popcorn duty (that guy is THE sweetest... ran out last second and got the cutest popcorn gifts in these little teacher gift boxes - I was so crazy I didn't even get a picture, but they were super cute.  Way to go, dad!!)

Anyway, the night before, I had Sissy write both her teachers (her English teacher and Spanish teacher - she's in the Dual Language program!) notes about how excited she is for the school year.  I found these from Cut & Create and they were PERFECT!

Gotta run - my chocolate chip cookies are done in the oven and I'm writing more thank yous to the little kids' teachers.  This is their LAST WEEK at the school we've been at for 4 years - and the only school the little kids have ever known!  We're moving them to the same town where Sissy's elementary school is (and where we moved in December).  I've got alot of love to put into these cards!

Happy Back-to-School, y'all!!

Love the notecards - love the popcorn idea. What a blessing you are to your kiddos teachers! I saw a few folks bringing treats or flowers this morning and just about smacked my palm against my head. Doh! I think I am going to come up with something and send it with my kiddo on Friday for a "Congrats on your first Friday back to school" or something like that. I enjoy seeing the ideas you come up with and keep up the awesome work!

Dalton wrote out 9 cards for his Preschool/Daycare teachers last week. When he handed them to them his last day...they started crying...I started crying. I really think I was more emotional that day than Friday his first day of Kindergarten.
