Mother's Day 2009

We celebrated our mothers to let them know how very special they are to us. Each child completed sentences about their mom. They included: I know my mom loves me when..., A special day with my mom would be ..., The best part of my mom is her ..., etc. We wrote them into books and then illustrated the pages. We added a dedication and an About the Author section. The books were wrapped and then we drew portraits of our mothers using fabric crayons. The portraits were ironed onto white handkerchiefs and used as bows for the presents. Secretly, the children brought me in favorite pictures of mom. I scanned them and made a movie of all the kids and their moms. There wasn't a dry eye in the room. It was a beautiful day for everyone. Just look at all our smiling faces. :)

Thank you so much for all of the hard work you put into this whole event! I will forever cherish my book, dvd and handkerchief! I don't think there was a dry eye in the room. You really let our children express themselves in such a creatively beautiful way :)
No wonder Morgyn want's to be a Teacher, you set a very high standard.
Forever grateful,
Morgyn's Mommy :)
