: Jacob's 1st Day :

The bag was packed, the notices filled out, the extra change of clothes and the cheque ready for his school supplies, my biggest little boy was ready for his first day {ahem, hour} of kindergarten...

The backpack was purchased at our local grocery store last year for $2.94 -- with a little money spent on embroidery {$6} - his first book bag was ready! So glad I did it last Fall because with all the extra little things you have to buy with school this has turned out to be an expensive venture!
We LOVE our teachers {we have 5 including Cole's 3 and Jacob's 2} so we decided to make them a little something that we think they would appreciate...I got this idea here
Home made cookies +
Plus a Starbucks VIA Italian Roast instant coffee +
A little label and some twine =

a super sweet little gift....

My biggest little boy ready to go to his first day

Jacob and his most delightful teacher --- again, couldn't be more blessed to have her as our kindergarten teacher this year!

After school, checking out his notes in his book bag and hanging with me in the kitchen, ready to do it all over again tomorrow!
Dear Jacob, we are so excited to see you learn to read, write and have fun in kindergarten! You made our hearts so proud as you walked boldly into the next big step of your life! We pray you'll love school, love learning and love sharing with you friends. We have no doubt that you'll prove yourself as a strong self starter and observant learner! Love always, Daddy & Mama

Tomorrow comes Cole's first day of 4 year old pre-school and I get to do the good bye's all over again!

Have a wonderful Thursday Lovelies!

I believe I spent a little over $1500 this year on clothes and supplies for 5! Glad I started saving up months ago lol!
