We are not positive but we think that it has been 3 years since we have all been together. Because of that, the camera came out and we marked the occasion with some family photos.
The Shannon Five!
The Original Shannon Five!
And finally, a sweet family photo of everyone. I only had to “Gimp” one set of eyes, and I will never tell you who was the only one that was blinking out of the entire Shannon clan. 🙂
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.
