My son and I were blessed to land in the class of an absolutely wonderful lady. She provided a nurturing, fun, educational environment, and I couldn't have been more happy to spend these last 10 months with her.
At our preschool, each of the classes has a bug/insect theme. We have the Roly Poly's, the Dragonflies, the Butterflies, etc.
My son was in the Dragonfly class.
A few weeks ago I was out in the yard, and I looked at a plant hanger stand that's been there since we moved in. I never before realized that it had a dragonfly on it. I knew right then that it would be a perfect gift for Little Boy's teacher! The only thing was, it had been sitting out there in the yard for a long time. It was looking pretty crummy. So I thought to myself "Self, this isn't anything that a good coat or two of Rust-Oleum can't fix!". And so I went to the hardware store, picked up some Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch in Key Lime (it was on sale!!) and I set to work.

|It was SO HARD to get a good pic of this plant hanger!|
Then I went down to our local nursery and picked up a hanging flower arrangement. So pretty! (And also on sale!!) I really love the way this project turned out.
It's still only a small gesture in comparison to the love and nurturing that our lovely teacher provided during the school year, but I truly hope that she knows how much we admire and adore her!
