Thank You Teacher

I am always thankful when it's Friday.  Our weekends are usually less busy then our weekdays so there is more time to hang out with the kiddos and of course work on the yard (never ending saga right?--for those that followed me during our "yard" creation I will post more photos in a few months time).  And this weekend couldn't be any better.  The weather temps may be record high for this time of the year...time to break out capris and a t-shirt!

While the end of the school year is still a few months away I put together a thank you card for one my daughter's teachers.  We have been very lucky to have her in our lives.  She is a true blessing.  One of her son's has asperger's and while Andrew (our son) has not been formally diagnosed (he is considered borderline) she is very compassionate towards our family. As many of you know I homeschool Andrew and while we are active with the homeschooling groups in our community, we don't always get extra socializing time.  Well would you believe she has invited us in the classroom to participate in drama, music, and field trips?  She even has a desk for our son to use any time we are at the school.  Andrew is known by all the kids and when they see me at the school without him they always ask how he is doing and when he will be back.  I can't tell you how happy that makes me and how important it is to him.

I digress... but of course she is the one who inspired me to put this card together :)
