out for summer

we made it through grade one by the skin of our teeth. and if it wasn't for the most amazing teacher ever, we might not have done so well.

i know that teacher's get so many gifts from their students, and so instead of buying them another gift card or bottle of bubble bath, i wanted to make something from the heart. i've been trying to figure out how to do a simple makeup bag and i think i finally figured it out. this one was for camden's teacher.
i thought the apples were appropriate.

camden has also been very lucky to have an EA (educational assistant) assigned to be with him throughout the school day. he has one in the morning, and one in the afternoon. i made each of those lovely ladies a tote bag.

such small gifts, but so much thanks are in my heart for these 3 wonderful people. they've made camden, and me, feel better in some very difficult times.

What lovely gifts, Sandy. They'll be delighted with them.
My grandson has a LA too - it makes such a difference to him.
Great news that Camden completed his first grade. x

Sorry, we call them Learning Assistants, hence the LA!!

That's gorgeous Sandy! As a teacher it's so lovely to receive handmade gifts - especially some as beautiful as these. I'm sure they loved them. And well done to Camden too!
