If You Need Me Between Now and August...

A couple weeks ago the crew and I island hopped over to Anclote.  Our favorite new spot.  Natalie LOVES it and we enjoy it as well.
*For you parents who like to swim and your little one is more independent that you feel comfortable with- purchase a PUDDLE JUMPER ASAP!  Awesome.  We bought ours at a local pool store.  They have different colors and faces for the kids to choose from.
When we were on the island- my husband snapped this picture.  Simply amazing that we live moments from this place and get to enjoy it anytime we want.  This picture makes me feel happy.


Better Late Than Never...

So I've been on Summer Vacation for 4 days and I thought I would post some end of the year crafts.  I did another brick for my Adopt a Class family but I also made another for a wonderful woman who we met on our May Day Walk.  There has been this tradition at our school that the Kindergarten students hand out tissue paper flowers to the people in our town.  Super fun and the kids LOVE it!  We gave a flower to this woman who was so touched and impressed by my kids that she wanted to get us something for our End of the Year party.  So we had pizza on her!  To say thank you I made her a brick as well.
Here is the Adopt a Class Brick:

N is the son I taught and E is the daughter I had this year.  M is me.  

Here is our May Day Brick:

I also usually write a poem about the year and the special moments and then add the kid's hand prints.  BUT this year I procrastinated and realized this on day 178 out of 180 so I changed the hand print part of it.  I am a huge fan of Ed Emberely's work so I had each child made a thumb print art and created a summer scene.  So this is how it turned out:

So off to finish my break and enjoy my Natalie time.
