First Day of Kindergarten



Kara starts kindergarten today and here's a bookmark I made for her teacher with OCL's new School Notes set. The apple and school notes rectangle are both up on foam tape. I know I keep saying it over and over, but these corner bookmarks are just SOOO fun to make! You can find Beate's tutorial HERE on SCS.

....and of course I just HAVE to post a picture of the kiddo on her first day of school and first day riding a bus. She's really excited and I hope she has the BEST day.





...I cried like a blubbering idiot after that bus pulled away, oye!

What an adorable and perfect gift to give to a teacher. I just dropped my last born child off at college this week, putting your kid on the school bus is a piece of cake compared to that!

I just love your bookmark and your daughters teacher will too. That was really special and kind of you to think of her teacher.
Your daughter is such a cutie...man oh man...I would be crying too. They grow up so fast don't they! Look forward to when she comes home with all her stories of her day! I used to love that!

I cried too on my DD's first day of school when she had to get on a bus! I swore I was gonna be brave, but by the time I got home I was sobbing like an idiot! LOL She's such a cutie pie!!! I'm sure her teacher was very impressed with the bookmark too! Hope the day went well for you and Kara :)

uh oh.....already 'buttering' up the teacher, eh????? Somehow from the picture at least, your daughter looks adorable and sweet....and someone who won't need 'buttering' to have a smooth start to school....however...I am loving your bookmark and I am sure the teacher will too

Janet said...

oh Denise - I totally feel your blubbering :) Our youngest started middle school this year and it is so hard to believe he will start high school in 3 years :( I love this bookmark and what a great idea for teacher gifts - one that I know I'll be using. Thanks

~~Hugs~~ Janet
