Throwback Thursday

Thursday, October 11, 2012
Maybe it was because  I didn't have kids yet...not sure.  I still feel like I do fun stuff even with being a mom/wife/runner, etc.  Right?!?  Well I just don't quite do stuff like this anymore...this was way back in 1998. 

Turn your classroom entrance into the Mayflower Ship for fun Thanksgiving rotations and party

 First Grade - I turned the entrance of my classroom into the Mayflower and part of my class too.  I remember stopping at a hotel and asking for 40 bars of soap so 2 first grade classrooms could use plastic knives to create 'arrowheads' - they sure made my class smell good while they were carving away at those.  haha!  Good times, good memories!
This school was so good to me - I have since changed schools but am still in the same district...anywho for my baby shower for my first the invites said -- BABY SHOWER HAPPY HOUR!!  LOL isn't that crazy!  They all had happy hour at my baby shower while I drank punch.  Too funny!  Then they took a 6 pack ( wine cooler ) pack covered it with baby paper - then put baby bottles in the holders where the wine went and filled each bottle with cash to go with the happy hour theme.  Clever!!
Hope you got a good laugh and if any of you feels creative and energetic give this a try the kiddos loved it!!
