The *Joy* of Year-Round School

So my little kindergartener, finally graduated! :) And we have been busily trying to soak up every moment we can of our whole TWO weeks of summer vacation (he starts first grade on Monday).Isn't that the best/worst part of year-round school though? The breaks during the year are nice, but I would MUCH rather have my boy home for a long summer break. And with the summer's so hot here in Vegas, they don't even get to have recess or play time really from mid-May to mid-August!
Anyways, back to the point ... I made ten gumball gifts for all his different teachers. I had seen the idea a long time ago while I was flippin' through blogs and can't remember where now (sorry!). But the saying was, "thanks for chews-ing to teach at Walker Elementary School".
*sorry for the bad picture, we were running really late*
Then I had Hunter sign his name on the back of each one. He was in absolute heaven taking presents to all of his teachers on the last day, and many of the teachers (like music, P.E. & library) were actually surprised to get a thank you gift too. :)


  1. very cute! I need to put that in my good idea folder!

  2. Very cute! It's wouldn't work for my middle school son. All over are signs that say "Gum = Detention" LOL

    I am book marking this for Hannah when she's in Kindergarten.

  3. That's a great idea! I think I'll copy the saying and switch it from gumballs to starbursts or something chewy - someday.

    at least you've sparked a LITTLE bit of excitment about some aspects of school... cuz next week - KINDERGARTEN HERE WE COME!

  4. What a fun idea! I'm going to have to try and remember this one for the future.


I love comments! Thanks for sharing! :)
