It was Eli's last day of school today. He had the absolute best teacher EVER this year. Not only was she a fabulous teacher, but she was also a fan of my crafts!!!
(Either she was a fan of the crafts or she faked it well :0)
Anyway, while we were in Utah this past weekend I saw this Watermelon slice at The Wood Connection and had to make it for her.
I have talked about The Wood Connection many times and this visit was not a disappointment! There were several crafts that must be made, but this watermelon was so cute I actually bought three. Granny, my sister Kira and I all finished one after our Saturday morning brunch.
Thanks again Granny for the FABULOUS food!
I made this quote block to go with the watermelon. Now I'm feeling a little dorky because I made the poem up myself. I read it to Scott before posting and he said it was a little more "Hallmarky" than the stuff I usually do. I guess I'm a little sentimental after leaving all our family this weekend than usually. I just really wanted to let our fabulous teacher know how much I appreciate the time she spent away from her kids to teach mine :0)
I made these treats for Eli's class this morning. My friend Ashley, from Cute As A Fox made some, but hers turned out much better. I couldn't find any chocolate covered cookies that were square while we were on the road, so I bought some Lorna Doones and dipped them myself. I cheated a little and just put a sour gummi worm on the top instead of making tassels. I figured the kids would like them just as well.
I put the worm on while the chocolate was still wet and skipped the whole glue-them-on step
One my way out of the classroom, as triumphant kids swarmed everywhere and paper airplanes whizzed past my ear, I snapped a shot of this sign on the wall.
I need this sign in my house :0)
