Hey CC Family!! As most of you know our Pre-k and Kindergarten graduations are coming up next week and if your kids are anything like mine it's a pretty dang big deal!! So.. Naturally they expect gifts on their bi day! now, my sweet in laws have the cutest tradition where they each pick a cute book and write a personalized msg for the little graduate. I personally LOVE that because its something they can keep forever! Last year I gave my little graduate some flowers and a candy ley for her graduation ceremony, it was SUPER cute but I got to thinking, with the money I spent to make that I could have gotten her something meaningful that she could keep and look back on later. ( I know how boring) I started my search and came up with some pretty dang cute ideas for not only my little graduate but also things I may start for the other kids in my life as well! Hope you enjoy these! See ya at graduation!!

You'll want them to see this!  As you all know Mother's day is LITTERALLY right around the corner an as a mother of three I know that even though motherhood is by far the most rewarding job you can have, its also by far the HARDEST and most DEMANDING job you can have all at the same time!

So  for those that need a little push in the right direction, here's a few ideas that I think are SUPER cute ways to tell mom how much you love and appreciate her!!

A teacher takes a hand, opens a mind and touches a heart. I just love this teacher's quote! This would be a great quote to place on your classroom door! :): Hello there CC family!! Super fun week this week! Its teacher appreciation!! If you're anything like me, this task can get a little overwhelming! Tying to find the perfect gift that says how much we appreciate them, without breaking the bank can be a hard task! So... I hit up pintrest and found some SUPER cute ideas that can be done at a fare cost!
As you prepare your gift for your special teacher remember that whether you have 1 teacher or 3. A toddler or a 6th grader at any age our children are being taught by a wonderful person!  Whether they teach at our center or in an elementary school. One thing I know is for sure is a teacher is the only person that's losing sleep over other peoples children!
I hope these ideas help! I know I'm using a few of them!
Love, Your CC Blogger
