Today marks the end of the school year for us ..... Yes, that's me you can hear cheering. It's been a tough school year for us in so many different ways. We're ready for the break - time away from books and study, time to refocus and relax, time to spend with family.
It's a big day for Girl Child ... she leaves Middle School today, and moves on to everything that is High School in the Fall. I found myself, surprisingly emotional when I dropped her off at school today - I guess these milestones doesn't get easier, just because they get older.
With both kids in Middle School now, there is little to no end of year teacher gifts to take care of. However, we do have 2 teachers in our Special Ed team, who have been outstanding. They really have gone above and beyond ....... even taking my 8pm phone calls, and never ever minding. I wanted to give them each a little something. We opted for a gift card - that way they get to choose. But gift cards can still look pretty ....
A little update from my kitchen ..... I have done some more jelly making. This time it was cherry jelly. The color of it is AMAZING !!! A gorgeous cherry red :-) Hubby hinted that he would not mind in the least if some orange jelly made its way into the fridge ...... of course I have to oblige. So next up, a batch of mandarin orange jelly .... I have everything I need, so it's to the kitchen I go !!!
Wishing you a lovely day.
