Teacher Appreciation and Mother's Day

The first part of my Grams conversation with me always goes about the same:
Grams: So, what is new?
B: Nothing. We have a pretty boring life, same stuff, differant day.
Grams: Honey, you don't know what boring is until you have our lives!
I love my Grams soo much!!! So here is an update on my week, very ordinary. Just the way I like it!

This last week was teacher appreciation week. Last year we got a key chain. Now, I am not saying this was bad by any means, afterall, it was just nice to be recognized. This year was so much better! There was a gift on my desk everyday of the week:
Monday: A coffee cup with coffee, hot chocolate and little chocolate mints (not sure yet what to do with the coffee!)
Tuesday: $10 gift card to Barnes and Noble
Wednesday: A polo shirt with the school's logo on it
Thursday: A really nice, engraved pen with my name on it
Friday: A picture frame/clock thing and our managers threw us a BBQ!! Wow!! I was so impressed! It was so nice to be appreciated! It wasn't the objects themselves that made so much of an impact, but the thought of it! Thank you! Thank you to my teachers of the past and to those who have impacted me in any way!

And the last thing I want to say is Happy Mother's Day! Thank you for being such spectacular, caring mothers to the children of the future! It is not easy, I am sure of it, but you are doing the most important thing possible and that is loving your children! Thank you so very much! One thing I have realized is that you don't have to be a mother to celebrate. Sure, I am a future Mom, but I can be a mom in other ways. (We learned this lesson from Sheri Dew, former member of the General RS). I also want to give a special shout out to my Mom! I am, by and large, the woman I am today because of her loving, caring and tender ways! Thanks mom! I love you so very much Mom!!

One of my favorite pics of me and my Mommy! (I'm pretty sure she is going to shoot me for this one!!)

That is so nice that you got recognized as a teacher! All those things are nicely thought out.
