a thank-you for teacher

I go the idea for this cute note/treat from the blog eighteen25...and if I was a scrapper and had all the cute paper and paper punches I could have copied it exactly.  However, I am not even close to scrapping anything and so I rely (heavily) on photoshop for creating cutesy things like this.  :)

I also had each of the boys write a thank-you card to their teachers.  I didn't think about taking a picture of them until after I had already sealed Joshy's in the envelope...but his was pretty cute!  I was going to help Jakob format his letter, and he said, "Can't I just write whatever I want?"  That's when I realized I was being way too controlling (part of me being controlling was fueled by the fact that it was already after 9pm and my kids were not in bed yet).  Of course he should write whatever he wants.  He's 8-yrs-old, he knows how to say THANK YOU!  So, here's the result of his cute thank you card:

 I'm so proud of both my big boys...I can't believe another school year has gone by...Joshy is officially done with Kindergarten and Jakob will be a 3rd grader next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Drew still has 1 year left of preschool before he starts kindergarten.  They are getting so smart and so much fun to talk to!  The things they come up with always keep me on my toes and make me laugh!

On another note...the next few weeks will be SUPER busy for us, so I may be absent from the blog world for a while.  Look for updates mid-July.   :)

Happy Summer!
