year of the plant.

the school year has come to an end. i had a wonderful bunch this year. i love the end of the year gifts from children. the best part is receiving them. they walk in the classroom with no book bags (which they are THRILLED about) and in their hand is usually a gift that they are SO excited to give to their teacher. oh. and they are DYING for you to open it.

this year, i received a few gift cards, which i am always thankful for... but the gifts that make me smile the most... sometimes get me teary eyed... are the gifts that the children find in their homes, because they want to give something... and parents may not have the time or money to buy...

this year i received a little angel.
and a chinese mug (i think)...
although these gifts are precious... this was definitely the year of the plants. not sure where my students overheard me discussing flowers and plants. or if it was just a coincidence... but i have received so many plants that tim was a little confused whose apartment he walked into today...

hoping i can keep them all alive... i'll take any tips... :)

wishing everyone a happy and safe summer! it truly is the most wonderful time of the year.
