Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day a few days late! My family celebrated on Saturday night with dinner and dessert. My sisters and I went in on a gift for her mom and got her this lovely Toss tote:
In school, we made these gifts for the moms in our class. I have to say that my kids were overly excited to give these to their moms. We first made to flower pens, then painted the pots, added a bit of ribbon and wah lah!

Here is what our classroom looked like during the project:

And here is the finished project:
Isn't this the sweetest note:I've posted quite a bit about school stuff...don't worry there are only 3.5 weeks left!
Then I'll move on to a new topic. :)

Last week at this time, I was apprehensively looking forward to a camp-out at our school. 3 other teachers and myself auctioned off a sleepover at our school's auction.

Well, the night was a hit! The kids really did have an awesome time- really, how could you not when you get to run around the school all night! We set up their tents in the hallways, ran them around in the gym, and had a Super Sleepover Scavenger Hunt, and watched A Night at the Museum. Around 2 am, the kids finally started going to sleep. 8 am come around quickly!

In the morning, the kids sleepily went home...and so did the teachers. I just wore my pjs home, but was greeted by many cars lining our street for the neighborhood garage sales. I quickly tried to sneak in our house without being seen in my pajama pants! Hopefully this Friday night, I will get a bit more sleep!
