Good bye Kindergarten!
Hello 1st Grade!
This little girl is so me. When I picked her up on the last day of school she started to cry. She said that she had cried earlier that day also because she was so sad to be leaving her classroom, her friends and her teacher.
This year Paisley had a male teacher, Mr. Mielenz and to be honest at the start of the year I wasn't sure if a guy teacher for Kindergarten was going to be very good. I just wasn't sure if he would be nurturing enough for my very soft hearted girl but he was a PERFECT fit! We will miss him next year.
The trouble with a man for a teacher...what do you get him for a gift to show how much we LOVED him? Well, my first thought was to just get him a gift card somewhere but that didn't feel personal so we made him a "Summer Fun" basket for him and his daughter (she is 4) to enjoy.
Mr. Mielenz was also kind enough to help me start a new tradition for Paisley. He was the first teacher to sign her book Oh, the Places You'll Go! and the plan is to give it to Paisley at her High School graduation (thank you Pinterest for the idea).
