mothers day, over the years
happy mothers day, to me!
see my little garden of mothers day love? every year shae's classes have made a flower for mothers day gifts. the first year- kindergarten, he loved the idea so much, he convinced his daddy to take him to the craft store to make something for mommy- acted as if the idea was totally his own because he wanted to make another one HIS way, apparently he wasn't able to use up all his creative energy on the school project! the flower all the way on the left with the cutesy polka dots & his picture is the one he made in his kindergarten class. the striped pot next to it was the one he made at home with daddy. he choose 8 different wooden pictures of things i like to glue around the pot, filled it with pretty stones and used a textured material for the stem. the red flower in the teeny pot is from his first grade class & it's a pen, so cute! this years addition is the sweet little pink flower, also a pen. i love that they used mostly recycled materials this year! they have been learning about the environment & conservation. and that toothless little boy? all mine. lost his third tooth a few nights ago and is working up the nerve to pop out the other front tooth, it's hanging from a thread! the new tooth is peeking through, all ready to fill the gap.
