Kindergarten Memories

Well we have survived Kindergarten, it was tough for sure. My son is somethin' else, smart as a whip, but has a bad habit of thinking he is the "boss of it!" His teacher and him butted heads quite often; actually probably every day. He is very independent, and super confident, more then I could ever be. I tend to be a quiet uptight gal at times. His confidence gets him in trouble and he really doesn't know how to use it to his benefit. It is a fault of his right now, but as he gets older he'll understand and use it the right way. We did survive however and he has been promoted to the first grade. :O)

We are so very proud of him. His teacher; and this is amazing, has created a scrapbook of memories for each child. There are 27 students and she created very nice 8x8 cloth albums. These are nice albums nothing cheesy about them. His dad and I tried throughout the year to get photos of fun things that they did as a class but were unsuccessful at times. Work calls and we must make the money. She had gotten these missed moments and made sure each kindergardener and their families could have these special memories. To her I am thankful.

The scrapbook pages you see on this post are just some of creative pages she had done.

I had earlier in the school year went to a scrapbook fundraiser for my sons school to help raise funds for supplies and field trips. The teacher was a big part of the fundraising team and she had asked the 40 people that attended the crop to take the old Christmas cards that were piled high on a table and remove the picture and paste onto construction paper to recycle them and send over to the troops. What a great idea, I had done at least a dozen cards. She said that the first year she done this she made 50 cards and gave to the 2 kindergarten classes and now she has done over 11,000 cards this year alone, all her friends and family give her their Christmas cards after the holidays and saves them for the following year. She now gives them to all schools in the school district. Again, it is great and my son was part of it.

I created a thank you card to send to her and had Lucas insert a small thank you note, and its just that a small thank you.
