Friend of the Week

Lily is the Friend of the Week in her 3rd grade class this week.

I spent an inordinate amount of time making her poster, but I wanted to make it extra special since we haven't done this since she was in kindergarten. If there was a spotlight in first grade, I didn't get the memo, and I totally blew it for second grade because Lily was the star of the week right after Christmas break and I totally forgot. So I stayed up into the wee hours of the morn to complete her poster. And let's face it- I'm an anal perfectionist (except when it comes to housekeeping).

Lily was especially excited about putting her baby picture and others of her growing up on the poster. (Click to view larger.)

Lily is so lucky to have a mom who would make such a great looking poster - from the fonts right down to the amazing photos. It's top notch! BTW, I'm adoring the new family photos in your banner. That curly haired Mack is KILLING me.

You Americans, have so many nice ideas to celebrate life and to motivate children!

I would not worry too much about the house keeping - dust keeps :-). You have lots of other talents and your kids are lucky to have you as their mom.
