Last Day of School

Today was the girls last day of school. Abbie woke up in the middle of the night feeling sick. The stomach bug has been making its rounds. She woke up this morning still feeling horrible and really was so sad to miss the fun of the last day. This year has been a fantastic year for both Abbie and Kate. I really liked both of their teachers, Mrs. Cloe and Mrs. Engle, and felt like their teachers loved my girls too. We loved our first year at the new Ranch Creek Elementary!

The girls helped make these clipboards for part of their teacher gifts. They each wrote (or drew) a thank you note and clipped it on the board. I thought Abbie's note was especially cute. Here's what it said:

Dear Mrs. Engle,
Thank you for a great year. You were the BEST teacher in the world. It must be hard some times not yelling at kids when they don’t do there work. All the teachers I have had in my life have had the same personalities. I liked meeting you.
Love, Abbie

You are so darn creative. You come up with the cutest things to do. Kaylee is soooo excited that Kate is done with school. Now the summer can really begin!!

Jen! those are adorable!
I am such a loser! Not only did summer sneak up on me so fast this year... but that means that the end of school did too!
We didn't do teacher gifts. Those are cute! Abbie's note is adorable.
I wasn't all that thrilled this year with my kids' teachers.
Sadie had some real 'life trials' in her class this year... and i don't know that i am happy with the way that her teacher addressed it.
Drake's teacher i sorta feel the same way about. Anyway, the year is done and i am hoping for better things next year!
Love you! can't wait to see you in....THREE DAYS!!!!!!!!! wooowhooo!

What a cute idea! I love the clip boards and Abbie's not is adorable! Sorry Abbie had to miss her last day of school- I'm sure that was hard for her.
