Back to School Blog Hop 9/1/12

Can you believe that summer is already over? September is here and our Kiddo’s are going back to school! Welcome to our Back to School Blog Hop. This is such a scary and exciting time for the kids and parents. This is our way to say Thank You to the teachers and to share our special memories. Who doesn’t have boxes and boxes of artwork, report cards, pictures, and sweet valentines from our kids, grandchildren, nieces or nephews? I love to look back at them over the years. And if your kids are just starting out, get a huge box; you are going to need it!
We have some very talented ladies who would love to share their beautiful projects with you.

So, first off, I would like you all to take note, that I was done with this on Monday, a full FIVE days early!!!! LOL This NEVER happens, so I wanted to make sure everyone knew it happened!! ;)
I have been an insomniac lately, partly b/c of my little guy, partly b/c I just can't sleep, so I have bcome a Pinterest addict! I found all these cute ideas for Teacher Appreciation week and then I found this one for a Back to School gift...... well, I had to do it!
Now, the original is slightly different, and I think slightly better, but I couldn't find the plain clear cups. But here is the a link to the blog where this idea came from, and where you can print off the tag too!
I filled them with Crystal Light packets, mixed fun sizebars of chocolate and then some Breath Savers on top :)
I also made one for our bus driver, and for his, I hand drew a little bus card, which you can't really see in the pic with my boys, but rust me, it's a bus card lol!

Hope you all like and enjoy our hop today!!!

Now, we wouldn’t want you to be tardy, so climb on the bus and ride on over to Jennifer J.'s blog

Whether you will be starting out listening to the” Wheels on the Bus” Nursery Rhyme or at the end of the year listening to “The Graduation March”, get yourself a big box of tissues, walk your baby out the door and take a deep breath. It’s a long 12 years! Have fun and take lots of pictures!
