My kids went back to school this week. We spent Wednesday night packing lunches, getting backpacks ready and setting out new clothes. I officially have a junior high-er (help!!), fifth grader and first grader. It feels weird to be in a new phase where I spend most of my time in the car shuttling from activity to activity in the afternoon, doing a lot of homework and trying to avoid embarrassing my kids. When did this happen??
In addition to the standard back to school stuff, I put together little baskets for the kids teachers for the first day. I added a Target gift card, a pack of pencils, markers and a pack of paper. Nothing too exciting but things I know they can use. I also added two little cards- one that I had my kids fill out and one that their teachers fill out.
For each holiday, birthday, teacher appreciation, I have a tough time finding just the right gift for my kids teachers. With this little card I now know what their favorites are and can get them something that I know they will appreciate.

What a thoughtful and creative way to bless your child’s teachers and get to know them. I love the idea of the little questionnaire card so you can tailor future gifts for them.
Thanks Zoanna! What a sweet comment. I’m excited to spoil my kids teachers to let them know just how much we appreciate them. ;)
