This week will mark the end of my son, Charlie's, first year in
Last week, I had the
chance to appreciate his teachers and in the past, you've seen
that I love Dr.
Seuss! So when I saw a pin floating
around Pinterest a few months ago about Oh, the Places You'll
Go!, I knew I wanted to start doing this for Charlie!
I snagged the book from Target back in March when they had it on
sale in honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday. A few days before the year
ended, I sent it in his backpack and asked each of his teachers to
write a special note to him. They were thrilled and each of them
signed it with their name & year. I plan to keep this going
until he graduates high school (a long, long time from now) and
then give it to him as a great keepsake. I also made sure to buy
two books so I had one for my son, Jack, as well.
Did you love the book idea? What about throwing an
entire party based off the book? Something the graduate or
birthday child or teacher would not soon forget! Need some more
graduation gift ideas? This
compilation offers some useful & nostalgic ideas to give
your favorite grad.
With graduations also comes Memorial Day! You might need some yummy
food or even a different
kind of drink to kick off summer!
Next week, I'm excited to start rolling out the summer pins to
share with you! For more pins or to share your own, check out our Pinterest
