we have been laying low around here this past week as the oldest pirate recovers from tonsil surgery. all is well and i am hopeful this will help alleviate the many rounds of strep we seem to endlessly battle around here.
somewhere within all of the busyness that comes with the close of another school year, the pirates and i were able to assemble tokens of appreciation to be given to their teachers for all they have given us this year. we are grateful for their tireless efforts!!
using recycled cans (washed and with holes punched in the bottom for drainage), we planted some pretty succulents that have taken abundant residence in our garden. the boys painted washes of color on watercolor paper and we glued around the can with a teeny tag.
a small but heartfelt gift of appreciation to share....and grow.
