Well my kids are BACK TO SCHOOL today! Say it with me…..
B-A-C-K T-O S-C-H-O-O-L!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1st, 3rd, and 5th. First time in 9 years that I will have all of them on the same schedule! And for some reason as I sit here Sunday night and type this out they are getting along beautifully- even though they had their MANY moments over the summer. I am left thinking….what the heck gives? Why were they not this good all summer?
Anyways…I saw this cute idea in the Splitcoaststampers newsletter for ideas for back to school teachers gifts. Do any of you remember the scene where Tom Hanks tells Meg Ryan how he would send her a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils? Well that is what my kids three teachers are getting. Although I made them SO sharp that I will have to carry them up to the classrooms! My hubby said they are a bouquet of daggers and I should really turn them around the other way because someone is going to get hurt. Doesn’t he get it? Injury or not it would totally ruin my presentation……..
I got the tins at Michaels…….
Rocks pencils, and floral foam at the dollar store…….
This was super easy to put together for the teachers. I hope they enjoy them. I figure they will always have a dagger…I mean pencil ready to use on their desks!
