For years I have sent little gifts and thank you cards to school with M. during Teacher Appreciation Week. Until this year when we started to homeschooling. To be honest it was such a relief not to have to worry about birthdays, class parties, goody bags, teacher presents etc. that it never occurred to me that I now qualify as the teacher.
Until I came home the other day and found this on the island in our kitchen:
I'll admit it... there were tears. What can I say - inside I'm just a big ole' softy. It didn't hurt that it was filled with chocolate either.
So, Happy Early Teacher Appreciation Week to all of you!
