Each Wednesday I am the teacher's helper in M's 1st grade class. Today was the pillowcase keepsake project. Each child brings in a pillow case and then parent volunteers write on the poem. Today, I painted the child's hand and then we stamped it on the pillowcase. I love her teacher, Mrs H., and the boys & girls in her class. It was a fun morning. More handprints to be done tomorrow -- but that's for a different mom! I'll be at the Nature Center with W's 3rd grade class. Oh, yes, as a thank you, Mrs H. gave me a lovely pink begonia hanging basket and a water globe. She knows me well -- pink and not so green of a thumb.
