Teacher Appreciation

In honor of teacher appreciation week, Wildman and I signed up to bring his teacher breakfast this morning.  I got the boys up early and we headed to Starbucks for Mrs. Lacy’s venti sweet tea and chocolate chip banana bread.  We had breakfast there too.  The boys each got a slice of lemon pound cake and a kids hot chocolate.  They sat at the bar looking so cute.

I also worked with our class mom on a gift from the children.  We decided to make a shadow box with all of the students’ initials in it.  We wanted something that wasn’t over-the-top teacher-y because Mrs. Lacy is retiring this year and will not have a classroom to display the gift in anymore.  The shadow box ended up being understated and kind of abstract.  Something she could possibly hang in her home.  Also, I found the cutest owl gift wrap at World Market to wrap it in!

Wildman and I also spoiled her with this cute flower arrangement.  Mrs. Lacy really is a tremendous teacher!  I’m very sad that Cutie Pie won’t get the opportunity to be in her class.  The elementary school just won’t be the same without her.

In other news, the children are hosting a Mother’s Day Tea at Wildman’s school on Thursday afternoon.  Mothers only was on the invitation 🙂  Luckily, my mother-in-law is available to watch Cutie Pie.  Wildman has a couple of lines to learn for the program that he’s doing with his class.

“S is for snacks, we’ve tried quite a few”

“P is for puppets and playing rhythms on drums”

I cannot wait for Thursday!  Isn’t the classroom Mother’s Day bulletin board adorable?  I couldn’t resist taking a photo of it this morning.
