Teacher Time! – Day 1

Today was the first day of school around here! And MORE importantly, the first day of school for my youngest son. Wow, now I have a Kindergartener and a Fourth grader. Just can't believe it.

With the start of school brings teacher gifts. Not mandatory, of course but sure are fun. I LOVE making teacher gifts! Well, one of my best creative buddies, Jennie, also loves making teacher gifts. Last year, she and I and our friend Lori, did a Teacher Tag blog hop to showcase our teacher gifts for the start of school. Jennie asked me if I wanted to do it again this year. Well, YEAH. Of course, I do! I'm just a bit behind in the posting today due to that first day of school thing! 😉

Now, last night at 11pm (WHY can't I learn to do this earlier???), I decided both teachers needed a little "first day of school" gift. Quick and easy and hopefully cute and useful, too:

Summer's over and it was a great summer at that. I love having my boys home. My husband got to take his sabbatical this summer (1 month off work) and we went to the USVI. It was wonderful. I wish we were still there. Sigh. School has started and with that comes all sorts of responsibilities.

But I'll have you know I didn't cry today. So what if I cried all weekend???  I didn't do it today. It wasn't about him starting Kinder. I LOVE his teacher. She was my oldest's K teacher, too. I LOVE our school. It's just that little guy won't be in the car riding around with me and keeping me company anymore. I'm sure I'll adjust to all of the free time but wow, what an adjustment!

Be sure to check out Jennie's blog and come back tomorrow, too. We're doing this teacher gift tag all week!
