Mothers Day lunch


Emma has the cutest preschool teacher, Miss Tina, and she does the most darling things!  Today I was invited to a Mothers Day lunch.  The preschool kids all wore their Sunday best and came out to greet all the moms when we arrived and presented us with a tissue paper corsage to tie on our wrists.  Each child took their mom to their designated seat in the backyard and then they served us lunch that they had prepared themselves (ham & cheese sandwiches, cheetos, celery, bananas and juice).  They gave us each a litttle mug they had painted and then we made a little chocoate cake and cooked it in our new mug in the microwave and shared it.  (It's a really easy 5 minute recipe if anyone is interested.)  It was so cute and the kids were darling!  She will graduate from preschool in two weeks and will be going back to the older class in the fall.  Even though she would be totally ready for kindergarten (she is writing and starting to read!) she has one more year of preschool.  Thank goodness her teacher is so awesome and Emma loves it so much!

That is so cute. I love creative teachers (that's where I get my ideas).
