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!
