Sad Goodbyes!

I am not looking forward to being at school tomorrow!!! During assembly Miss Jacomb will be presented with staff gifts, cards, etc and the whole school will be saying goodbye to her!!! I know I will be shedding a tear or two. Over the last two years I have worked in her class, and have come to know her and respect her both as a teacher and a lovely woman. The school will miss her, the students will miss her and the teachers will miss her!

Also Aimee has spent the last 2 in a half years in the Foundation Stage at Great Coates, but tomorrow will be her last day at Great Coates. Aimee will be starting in St Joesph's Primary School in September and she will have to travel by bus!!!! Again I will be shedding a tear or two especially when she gets on the bus for the first time, she still be only four, her 5Th birthday won't be for a few weeks later.

I have asked Aimee how she feels about going to a whole new school, with new teachers, children and building! She says she is excited, and that she will make new friends and can't wait to travel on the bus. I am so happy that she is so confident and takes everything in her stride, she doesn't worry, or dwell on things.

Here is the card that Aimee and I made for her teacher.



The picture of the painted flower, is one that Aimee did at school, I scanned it in and re sized it and printed it out. Aimee then wanted to draw happy children around the card, I was cringing but after all it is her card that she will be giving to Mrs Wright.



Aimee wrote the inside of the card herself, this is how far she has come since September and is learning all the time, sometimes it is hard to keep up with her!!!!!

I used some black paper and my white sakura pen to make a chalkboard effect. I used a gold brad to look like a thumbtack holding up the sign. Then just some ribbon and a brad.


Here is the gift that Aimee is giving her teacher, cute huh????





This is what it looks like after I got my hands on it, lol



I wanted the mini-mini layout to be very simple as there wasn't alot of space! I used some lilac cardstock, some prima mini flowers, some pearl stickers, ribbon, ink and white cardstock.
