School Days

Hi everyone.  So summer is about over and school is beginning in 7 days.  I can't believe my little guy is heading into first grade!  I am sad that summer is over, but it will be nice to be back on a routine again. 

We have a busy week of buying school supplies and uniforms ahead of us.  Monday, we are going to a meet and greet with the new teacher and drop off the school supplies. Max wanted something nice to bring to his new teacher and I wanted something cute to deliver a teacher survey in.  This year I decided I didn't want to have to guess on what the new teacher likes throughout the year so I'm sending this little survey for her to fill out.  There are a lot of different versions out there, but the one I found on Domestically Speaking I think is the best.  I'm going to print it out on some cute paper and insert into a cute card!

Cuts and cartridges:
grass           Ribbons & Rosettes         1/2"
road            My Community                1"
fence           My Community                3/4"
bus              Beep Beep                      1 3/4"
kids             Autumn Celebrations       1 1/4"
school          My Community               2 1/2"
clouds          CCR Basics                    3/4" and 1/2"
                    This & That                    1/2"

I used a paper from the DCWV Grade School mat stack for the inside.  I decided to leave it blank and I'm going to let Max write his own message in there.

I hope you all have a wonderful day!!!
