"Today I feel perfect!"
"Happy Birthday. Hug!"
"How are you going to drink that coffee?"
"Are you 68? Um... 23?"
"Is it fun being a teacher? I think it's fun."
Today was full of funny quotes from my students. My amazing room dads and awesome friends surprised me for an early birthday celebration at school!
Ari, thanks for the decorative cup o' joe and birthday song!
My room dads secretly asked all my students to bring flowers for a class bouquet. In all my years of teaching, I have never gotten so many flowers (although teacher appreciation week comes close). It was really cute seeing my class holding all the flowers in line.
My thoughtful friend Caitlin + crew got me the Dorothy TOMS I blogged about a few weeks ago!
I have happy feet!
...and flowers everywhere.
I took most of the flowers and made this lovely bouquet:
And my room dad even baked this HUGE cake for me and to share with all the teachers.
It was delicious and had turquoise lettering too. :)
Before . . . and after.
In addition to the flowers, my kids made me cards and drawings. One student wrote me a letter which was too cute!
Thirty is going to be fantastic!
