The end is near!!

Finally….we have one day left until the end of the school year for Christopher!! Woot-hoot!! I see a light at the end of the tunnel. The last 2 weeks has been crazy with the 2 kids and picnics, parties, field days, literacy balls and running to get everyone under the sun a present! LOL! I know that I tend to take on way to much, but in the end, things always work out.

Anthony ended last week. His nursery school had a little party where the parents were invited into the class and the children sang songs. Anthony did great. He was one of the only ones singing…lol! After all of the entertainment, the kids and the parents shared snacks. It was really cute. But I knew the drill as Christopher went to the same school and even had the same teachers!
(Notice the new ‘cool’ haircut? LOL!)

I was a class parent in Anthony’s class and so I was in charge of the gift. The entire class chipped in and we got a group gift. It is just so much better for the teachers I think. Otherwise they end up getting a bunch of cheap junk. Good old Pinterest helped me with an idea. We got each teacher (and there are 3) a $75 Visa gift card. But I wanted to display in something cute.

Here is what I did….
I got an oven mitt and 2 other kitchen utensils.

I then made a tag that said “We adMITT you are one of our BEST teachers!”

Put it all together and you have an adorable teacher gift. They all loved it!

Sorry, I forgot to take a picture with the tag on it….lol!

Anthony and his teachers….a bittersweet day was had by all!

Now, one more day and Christopher will be done!! I will post about his end of the year tomorrow.

Have a great day!

Delicious and Nutricious?

This post brought to you by Quaker Oats. All opinions are 100% mine.

Are all moms the same?? Every morning I am scrambling to get the kids ready for school. It is never a simple process although you would think it would be by now. Who can’t find their shoes, who can’t find their homework!! It seems as though I get so wrapped up in getting the kids ready, that I often forget to eat.

Well, that is about to change ladies. I have discovered the NEW Quaker Soft Baked Bar!

They help provide the FUEL you need with the FLAVOR you want. This new snack bar from Quaker is made with real fruits and nuts that you can eat on-the-go OR warm up in the microwave for a real bakery experience. They are DELICIOUS. They come in two flavors, Cinnamon Pecan Bread and Banana Nut Bread. The Banana Nut is my favorite, I guess because I love all things banana. It is great to feel like I am getting wholesome food that is not only good for me, but that tastes great too.

These treats are packed with:
• 140 calories
• 5g of Fiber
• 6g of Protein
• Excellent source of 5 B-Vitamins

The best part is, the kids actually saw me eating this breakfast snack and they wanted to try it. Well, low and behold, they loved it too. I guess it is now going the be the breakfast that we all sit down and eat in the mornings together! I love when I get excited about something and get to share it with all of you. I hope you try them, I know you will love them as much as we do.

A visit…..

Happy Monday everyone!! Hope you all had a great weekend. We were very busy last week. With the end of the school year coming up it has been nothing short of chaotic!!

But, we did have a special visitor come to our house amongst the craziness. Have she been to your house yet??

Yes, Christopher lost his first tooth!!

The best part is, only 2 days later he lost another one and she was back again!!

What is the going rate these days for a missing tooth?? She brought $10 for the first one and $5 for the second, I am thinking she will bring $1 for all the rest!! LOL!!

Have a great day……
