Yesterday was Gabe’s last day of Preschool. He is now going to be a Pre-Kindergartener next year!! My sweet little boy is growing up sooo fast! It is gonna truly be bittersweet after next school year when he will be gone to Kindergarten all day. There is definitely something sad and different thinking about your last child going to school all day – especially having no other babies at home to take care of like I’ve been used to for the past 15 years!!! Crazy! I have all next year to prepare myself right?!
In my stupor this morning I realized I hadn’t come up with a teacher’s gift for Gabe’s two AWESOME and sweet teachers yet!!! Can I just say THANK GOODNESS for Pinterest and how much I LOVE that website?!?!!!! I have been randomly pinning teacher gift ideas over the last couple of months but have had no time (or brain) to sit down and actually go through them to pick one out and do until this morning. I had 5 minutes to decide what I was going to do that was cute, simple, cheap, and sentimental. Within a minute I came across the cutest idea and knew that was the one!!!! Its’s the M&M’s Teacher Appreciation Gift on the cutest blog called Domestically Speaking!
I LOVED the sweet poem that went with it and I especially loved that they had it available to just copy and paste! I had all the supplies but the M&M’s and it was super quick to put together before we walked out the door. I thought they turned out SUPER cute!
