Last Day of Kindergarten

I can NOT believe it is the last day of Kindergarten for our oldest. My goodness. Wasn’t I just worried about whether or not he would ever take his first steps and now here he is writing “Thank you for being my teacher” onto note cards for his two teachers.



Just like Patrick’s teachers, Michael’s teachers got a note with a Target gift card. With Michael’s teachers I put the note and GC in a bucket from the dollar spot at Target because all year the teachers stressed the importance of  being a “bucket filler” to the kids. Bucket filling comes from this book and it is super cute. Give it a read sometime.

I even found Target GCs with a dog in a bucket. I am thinking that I am pretty clever this morning. Excuse the photography. I was clever but very rushed. No time to mess around with settings and try to get a good shot. The card with the phrase “It takes a big heart to shape little minds” is a printable from Bitsy Creations that I edited a bit in GIMP and made into cards.


The irresistibly cute school bus cards are a free printable from Caravan Shoppe. I love them so much that I printed out four and wrote a little note inside for each of Michael’s bus drivers and the aide that rides the bus too.

    I should NOT have changed my major from early childhood education to things that would prepare me to teach college, because kindergarten teachers get WAY cooler gifts =) Probably, because they have a student with a VERY thoughtful mom :).

    Hi. I am having a school bus birthday party for my son and just loved your school bus cards!
    The problem is that I can’t find them at Caravan Shoppe.
    Can you help me, please?
