A going away gift...

On Wednesday I found out that this was going to be the last week that Mrs. Isackson was going to be at the preschool. Now I have known for months that she was leaving us (she's moving to be closer to her son and grandkids) but I didn't know exactly when. Gretchen has been as Westside for as long as I can remember (in fact she was there when I went to school there!) So it will be really strange not seeing her face in the office when I drop off and pick kids up from school. So today the kids (Ryann and Jaxon) and I decided to make her a going away present and we wanted it to be special. I picked up a vase, fake flowers, marble stones, paint and butterflies at the store today and we went to work. The flowers, ladybugs and spiders are all made using the kids' thumbprints and then I painted or drew in all the details, then we added the stones and flowers and glued on the butterflies for the finishing touch. I think it turned out really nice and I hope she will like it!
