Do you still get them?!? I certainly do….even after 5 years! Tomorrow is my first day back, and I still get SO excited to see all the little souls that God has given me to love and teach each day. I can’t wait!!
Tomorrow is also a huge day for our family! My little miss starts Kindergarten.

I am not sure who is more of a mess right now….the hubby or me!?!? 
While out shopping this weekend {shocker, I know} I let her pick out different things that she thought her teacher would need. Once we got home, I realized everything she picked out was PINK!! So, to put it all together…her teacher’s card says:
“I am tickled pink to have you as my teacher”.
We had Meet the Teacher Thursday, as well as in-service this week…that might explain me being MIA this week. I wish I would have taken more pictures from that night. But, the two that I did get are 2 of my favorite things about Meet the Teacher that I wanted to share. One thing I love to do is give my parents these Blending Up a Good Year contact magnets. They are perfect for them to hang on their fridge!
I came across a similar idea last year on What the Teacher Wants and I knew I had to use them again this year. Click {here} to download these for free. This file is a PDF; you will need to write in your contact info.
Also, I love to give the kiddos a little treat when they come in! Last year I gave the kiddos {these}, but I wanted to change it up for this year. After seeing The Teeny Tiny Teacher’s adorable tags, I knew I had to make. Click {here} for the tags.
I know I am a bit late on posting these freebies…maybe you can save them for next year!
I am off to get some rest for our big day tomorrow!!


  1. What a sweet gift for you daughter's teacher - she will LOVE it! Your back to school goodies look great! Good luck tomorrow!

  5. Your daughter is so precious! What a sweet gift! I am sure she will steal her teacher's heart!


  6. I STILL get butterflies and I am on year 17 in first grade! :) Your daughter is precious... My younger daughter started kindergarten last year and I couldn't believe it. This year, my baby is in my grade (first, but not in my school, boo) and my big girl is starting middle school! Aaaahhhh!
