Today Is Monday! {Linky}

The KIDS are done with school!
And I couldn't be more excited.
As I type everyone seems to be sleeping in because it is pouring out over on Long Island!
We have VBS at church this week at night!

So off we go this morning in the rain to decorate my classroom.
I am teaching the pre-schoolers which means I have the little guy.

Speaking of which...

He had his moving up ceremony from his rainbows class at church.
He sang the B-I-B-L-E with the kids in his class.
So cute.
He has another year next year before he can become a Royal Ranger like his big brother!

It was my first year teaching the 3rd grade girls in Stars 1.
I wanted to give the girls something as we (a wonderful woman teaches with me) handed them their certificates.
I called the florists and they wanted $3 and change for one carnation with baby's breath.
With 10 girls that would of gotten pricey.
So, I went to Sams and bought 10 white carnations for about $5 and some baby's breath for about $4 and some greenery for about $2. I bought a spool of ribbon for $1 from Michaels and I had cellopane at home.
I made a tag with my cricut and a stars emblem on the computer.
I wrapped up the flowers and they only cost me about $1.20 a piece!    Not too shabby.

This is a pic of the middles waiting for the bus on the last day of school armed with presents for the teachers.
They had wonderful teachers and I was unsure what to get them.
They deserve so much and wanted to give them giftcards, but it really starts to add up.
I went with beautiful journals I found at Marshalls and my son wrote to his teachers on the first page. We made some flower duct tape pens to go along with them. Really cute.

And the little guy dressing up in one of those snowman kits he found in the linen closet.
We might have to spend a lot of time teaching him not to trash mom's house this summer.
I am making plans to stay somewhat on track this summer.
We already signed up for the summer reading program at the library.

What about you?
