Bailey’s been attending the same pre-school since she was just 6 weeks old. And over the past 2+ years she’s had some wonderful teachers and made some great friends! She absolutely loves being at school! Just look at her class picture from this year…
…doesn’t she just look like one of those happy-at-school kind of kids? Well she certainly is! And who wouldn’t be with these sweet teachers and adorable classmates (in case you’re curious, Bailey’s best friend/boy friend, Colin, is the cutie on the end in the yellow shirt)!
So, in honor of teacher appreciation week (this past week) we did a couple of things to show our appreciation for the wonderful teachers in Bailey’s life.
For starters, Bailey was given a piece of paper to decorate and return to the school as a gift for her teachers. So we pulled out some foam letters (left over from my DIY kitchen word art project) and washable paint… and Bailey went to town (despite the fact that there was a giant baby bump all up in her work space)!
After the paint was dried, Bailey and I removed the foam letters.
The budding artist was pretty satisfied with her work… and so were her teachers when she presented it to them the following morning!
The next token of our appreciation was some “Thanks A Latte” cards that Bailey and I put together for each of her four teachers. All it took was a few Starbucks gift cards and left over card stock from Bailey’s birthday invitations. Unfortunately, due to a crazy work week, Craig being out of town and the fact that I’m 8 months pregnant, I didn’t have quite as much energy to invest in the teacher gifts as I have had in the past (see past teacher gifts here and here). But in spite of all this, I still think they turned out pretty nice!
I also whipped up a breakfast casserole for a pot-luck style breakfast that us full-time parents hosted for the pre-school staff on Friday. I was given back an empty dish at the end of the day, so I’m assuming that the food was a success.
Anyway, to wrap this post up Bailey, Craig and I would like to send out another big “thank you” to all of the teachers in our lives! We appreciate you all very much!
