My baby has his very last day of pre-school today. It's bittersweet for me.
Knowing my three children will be in school all day next year makes me a tad giddy
and leaves me feeling guilty for being giddy.
For the past 10 years, I have had a baby, toddler, young one at my side at all times.
I have loved every minute of it, well, okay, almost every minute of it.
I certainly wouldn't trade that time for anything in the world.
Life goes on and my babies are growing up at a faster rate than I would like,
but I am embracing it excitedly looking forward to this next stage in life.
Here is the little cutie on his very first day of pre-school back in 2009.
And here he is on his first day of pre-school this year (doing his homework)!
He has such loving teachers at his pre-school and
we wanted to give them something special on the last day.
This is what I came up with.....
I really could have used one of these myself.
I used these supplies when making the flower pins we attached to the gifts:
1/4 yard of fabric
hot glue gun
First I cut approximately 12 circles of fabric. No need to be precise, a messy circle will do just fine.
Next you fold the circle in half.
(please ignore my neglected nails)
Then you fold the circle in half again.
Next you start attaching your petals to a felt circle with hot glue.
Keep adding petals until you get the desired fullness.
Lastly, attach the jewelry pin to the back of the felt circle with hot glue.
Add the flower to your package along with a printable gift tag
and you have yourself an adorable teacher gift.
My son has four teachers so I made one for each of them.
My husband and I are headed to Nashville today and I didn't get to see him off this morning
(insert tears here), but my mom and my friend snapped a few pictures and texted them to me already.
Looks like he picked out his own clothes (and accessories)!
Here he is with is best "girl"friend!
I hated to not be there to give him a big hug and kiss on his last day of pre-school,
but seeing these pictures sure made my day!
I still have a week and a half before my other two get out of school for the summer.
I had better get my act together!
How about you, are you ready for summer?
