My kids have been in school for a couple of weeks and we are finally settling into a routine. Bedtime is no longer 9:30 pm and breakfast is a bit more substantial than "whatever is in the fridge".
Not once in my three years of teaching HS did I receive a personal thank you note from a parent or student. While I am not bitter about this whatsoever, I have made it a goal to personally thank my kids' teachers a bit more often.
Have you been in a second grade classroom lately? Seven and eight year-olds emit some sort of funk that is a cross between greasy hair and dirty jeans. Classroom management issues aside, the smell alone makes me admire their teachers even more.
These cards were made using the technique described in this post. I absolutely love the glittery apple paper and only wish I had more. A set of 4 of these cards is currently for sale in my Etsy shop.
