Using mini notecards and envelops, I created a message for each teacher that said "Thank You for making school fun" to include with the $10 gift card.
On the way home from school yesterday, James and I stopped at Starbuck's and had a little date. He insisted on bringing Monkey and wubby (his blanket) inside too. He ordered the chocolate milk and I had an iced tall 2-pump mocha. We sat on the patio and chatted, "cheersings" our drinks too many times because he thinks its funny and I'm addicted to the sound of his laugh and the way he looks when he can't contain the laughter. It was a sweet 15 minute stop on the way home that just might become a weekly tradition.
