This one's for my Teacher Friends

I ran across this NEAT idea I thought it was TOO CUTE not to share. No, I am not a teacher but I have a few teacher friends that I thought might enjoy this idea and want to use it in their classroom. Yes, it is a little late for this year but put it in the idea book for next year.

The teacher first took little cellphone cone shaped bags and filled them with a homemade trail mix and tied them with a cute ribbon. The mix and bag for the mix could really be whatever you want, it is the attached poem that is SO CUTE! The teacher attached the following poem to the mix and handed them out at the open house before school started to each of her new students. HOW CUTE IS THAT!!!

The night before school is exciting and fun,
there are always so many things to be done.
Your clothes are ready, your backpack is too.
Your classroom is full of fun things you will do.
There are so many questions that go thorough your mind,
all types of thoughts of every kind.
But sometimes we all the the jitters down deep
and that makes it hard to fall fast asleep.
So I've made you a magic snack mix, it really is cool.
It will help you be rested and ready for your first day of school.
Just eat the snack right before bed
On the night before school starts when you lay down your head.
The snack will help you sleep through the night
And you will wake up in the morning fresh and bright.
I'll be sure to have this magic snack, too.
And remember, I just can't wait for school so I can see YOU!!!

First Day of Preschool

Kennedy was so excited to go back to preschool this year at St. James. She had a blast last year and could not wait to get started again this year! I thought she looked too cute in her little uniform and "piggy tails"! It is hard to believe that she will be old enough for kindergarten next year!

My Little FIrst Grader

It is so hard to believe that my little guy started first grade this week! It seems like he should still be my little baby! I took it pretty hard when he informed me the night before the first day of school that I could walk him to his classroom but ABSOLUTELY NO kisses from mom "how embarrassing"! He is growing up too fast! I hope you have a wonderful year little man! I am so proud of you!

Mexico 2010

We had a WONDERFUL family vacation this year to Mazatlan, Mexico! The kids were able to experience a bunch of "FIRSTS"
Their FIRST plane ride
Their FIRST time at the beach
Their FIRST time using passports

I can't wait to keep adding to this list with our 3 amazing children!!! What an awesome experience this was for our family! I can't wait to vacation again!

Conner and Kennedy had so much fun they both decided they both wanted to live there! I can't say that I blame them, all the food, all the drinks, all the pool and all the beach you want all day long!
