april is a super crazy month for us.
then, the end of the school year!
all within a couple weeks.
so i'm trying to plan ahead a little.
anna and i hit up the dollar sections at tarjay and michael's.
we decided on a cupcake themed sleep-over party for her.
josh is thinking maybe a drive-in movie with pizzas for him.
and we decided that maybe we should get the teachers easter and end-of-the-year gifts too.
we decided that gardening gloves, flower seeds and little bird houses (that the kids will paint) are a perfect lovely, and heartfelt, gesture.
all i need to get now are a couple of flower pots--and i'm thinking the kids should paint the teacher's name on the sides just for fun.
one year we did beach towels as a gift and they were loved too.
i think teachers just need something personal and they are happy.
as for me, i just want to make it through this special month with my sanity in tact, so getting an early start really helps.
