But, it's time to step forward. Life was in limbo for 5 weeks. And now, life is back.
(Seriously, I haven't seen an alarm clock since April 4th!!!!)
Today's step forward was working on end of the year gifts for my kiddos. I have a fabulous family who has been checking in on me and want to help any way they can. Um, would you like to put end of the gifts together, please?
I think every elementary student in the U.S. will be getting gifts that include bendy straws & Kool-Aid this year, thanks to Pinterest! But, I love the theme and grabbed adorable (FREE) tags from... A Cupcake for the Teacher! They say... "Have a krazy kool summer!" Isn't that sweet?
FYI for all you procrastinators who haven't put anything together yet...
Whirly straws, pack of 6, 98 cents at Wal-Mart in the party favor section!
5 for $1.00 packs of Kool-Aid at Meijer!
Tumblers, pack of 4, $1.00 at Wal-Mart!
(In our school colors, added names with a Sharpie, and a paw print to go with our mascot.)
I will also be chucking in clearance spring pencils, a la Target Dollar Spot and bubbles from Wal-Mart's end of summer clearance last year. My nieces and nephew think I need to add candy in the cups. My sister suggest unfrozen freezer pops and some water balloons.
Who knows what else I'm going to add! All I know is these little guys deserve this and so much more. They've been patient, kind, understanding, loving, resilient, etc... while I was with my dad. And, I can't wait to see those smiling faces in the morning...
Ready to take a step with me!
