Yesterday I took some time to purchase teacher gifts for the grands and a special graduation gift. We are fortunate to have a great gift shop downtown that always has just what I need for special occasions and they deliver graduation gifts to the young person's home. How is that for service?
Sixteen years ago I was working as an assistant at Central Weekday School. Sara was a super sweet little girl in my class and I really liked her mom, Susan. One of the other assistants told me that this family was looking for someone to take care of Sara's baby brother so Susan could have a day off. Well that was just up my alley as I could use an extra part time job and I loved this family. I started Nannying for Drew when he was six months old. And I was with the family until he started school. After that, I would babysit for Sara and Drew as needed. My youngest son, Charles, often called Drew, Precious, because he knew how much I loved that boy! I think he might have been a bit jealous.:) Well that young man is all grown up, graduating from high school and will head off for Auburn University this fall.
As for the teacher gifts. I found some cute waterproof bags that can be used for many things but they are designed to hold phones and electronics at the pool or at the beach. I always try to get the teachers something that I would want myself! And so another school year draws to a close. Nana will have to get busy planning some GRAND activities for the summer!
