School is SO Out!

Oh yes it is! The Preschool is D O N E! Summer break is here and I couldn't be more ready! I love my job at The Preschool, but the last 6 weeks or so, it's been pretty time consuming. I know that being busy just comes with the territory when it's May, but I'm blaming it on The Preschool, OK?

I wanted to share one of the many projects that has been eating away at my free time over the past few weeks. It's the teacher gift that we gave to the girls' teacher this year. Their class was called "The Little Sweeties", so this is what I came up with.

Ms. Lisa had no idea that she was getting a class thumbprint plate, which is a HUGE miracle. Because making the plate involved sneaking 4 year olds around and getting them to secretly paint their thumbs. And then getting the 4 year olds not to tell anyone what they've been up to. Which is the miracle part. Because 4 year olds aren't the best secret keepers. Anyways, they did it and Ms. Lisa was delightedly surprised.

Just to let you know what you're in for over the next few days. . .a lot of pictures of finished projects. We got more pottery, some scrapbooks, and just some general fun and mahem. I just wanted you to be prepared. Why now you ask? Well. . .because. . .The Preschool? It's out!

Wooooo Hooooooo!!!! Doin' the happy dance for you! (We still have two weeks to go - blah!)

The plate looks darling! I'm completely impressed that all those 4 year olds kept the secret. If you had Jessica in the class, the secret would have lasted about 1.3 seconds.

Glad you're back and cant wait to see pics and such!
