We bought some gerberas to fill the vases – and I hope these will look lovely on the teachers’ desks.
My middle daughter also requested that I create a bracelet for her teacher. My daughter chose the beads and charms, and also the toggle-style bracelet.
So do you give “thank you ” gifts to teachers? It is usual to do it here in N Ireland, but at the school my daughter attended when we lived in England this did not appear to be a common practice, neither at Christmas or in the summer at the end of the academic year.
For more Show and Tell visit Kelli at There’s No Place Like Home.
I am also including this as my Beautiful Life post.
There is nothing quite like a home-made gift or card, either to give or receive. For some wonderful ideas and inspiration, visit The Inspired Room. This week you can read about creating a fun list of activities to do over the summer.
I suggest that you also visit Hooked on Houses – I am hooked on home-made gifts, what are you hooked on.
Here are the kids on our last walk to school together. Never again will they all be walking like this together. We reminisced about walking in the snow, pushing my wee one in his buggy up the hills, playing “guess the number of cars which will pass us” and other fun activities. Hard not to use a cliche such as “end of an era”.
Everything you did when you were small
But if days get forgotten, in time to come
May this journal give you a feeling of fun.
Echoes of poems, or games or songs.
Memories of rights and notions of wrongs.
The joy of dressing up to pretent –
I hope this will help with
“I remember when……..”
All three of my kids have had wonderful teachers this year, and have all progressed so well. As this year ends, I hope we all enjoy the break from routine and relax before starting to think of September when 2 out of the 3 will start new schools.
