First Day of School

Today was the Addy's first day of her second year of Kindergarten. She was so excited to to be going back to school that she woke up at 3am!

A few pictures before school...

Lol, I told her to smile & this is what she did. What a silly girl!

Her classroom door is decorated in zoo animals. Perfect for Addy!

Addy & Mrs. Jalifi...Addy was to busy coloring to look for a picture.
When I picked Addy up from school, Mrs. Barry (the special ed aide) said that Addy had a great day. (I'm so thankful for that because I was worried after the 3 am wakeup.) She had an awesome year last school year & I just know that this year is going to be even better!
As you can see, the first day back to school + a 3am wakeup = a very tired little girl who took a nap after school.
Last Tuesday was Meet the Teacher night for Addy. Look what I made for her teachers...
a school supply cake
I saw this idea on Pinterest around Christmas & immediately thought it would be a great back to school teacher gift. Thankfully, I remembered to make them this year.
 I looked at the links on Pinterest but decided to do it my own way.
For the bottom tier, I took a box of tissues & covered it in a piece of school themed scrapbook paper. Then I used packing tape to secure 10 boxes of crayons around the box of tissues. I also taped a glue stick in each of the 4 corners.
For the middle tier, I covered a pack of baby wipes in a coordinating piece of scrapbook paper. And once again, I used packing tape to secure 2 bottles of glue to the 2 sides & a pack of markers to the front. I didn't add anything to the back.
For the top tier, I bought a small striped cardboard basket & filled it with an assortment of supplies such as sharpies, paper clips & stickers.
For the decorations, I bought a pack of bulletin board border & wrapped it around the bottom 2 tiers. And I used my cricut to cut the apple & the school bus from cardstock. 
I think they turned out super cute & both her teachers loved them!
