School Jitters

Well, DS2 has survived two whole days of kindergarten.  The first day, I could tell he had butterflies in his stomach as he faced the unknown.  We’d told DS1 to look out for his little brother a bit and he did, other than running for the bus and leaving DS2 standing there!  LOL!  They both came home happy and that makes me happy.  Yesterday, DH told me that he had to run back to the house to get DS2’s name badge, leaving both boys with the neighbors at the bus stop just in case the bus came while he was gone.  It did.  DS1 got on and DS2 stayed behind, missing the bus.  Oh, the drama!  (I’m actually laughing as I type this!)  It’s a good thing we’re only about five minutes driving time from the school!  Here’s hoping the next few days go smoothly for our little kindergartner!

This week over at Splitcoast Stampers, the Clean & Simple Challenge is a theme challenge based on “school.”  How appropriate!  Since I always seem to be lacking thank you cards for teachers during the school year, I was more than happy to make one to have on hand!

Stamps:  SU (School Lines), Paper Trey (sentiment)

I hadn’t used my notebook punch for a very long time, but remembered it as I was wracking my brain for ideas!  I added the thin line of black cardstock at the very end, wanting to dress things up a bit!

Have a wonderful Thursday!

    I am smiling from ear to ear from your story. Brings back so many memories of my kids. Now after many years of not walking or wanting to walk together they are now walking together most days. Fantastic card I love the notebook punch at the top of your die cut.

    This is so precious with the little beads and the knot of twine. I can't believe you have to wrack your brain; it seems chucky-jam full of amazing ideas to me!

    Thanks for sharing the sweet events of the first days of school!
