Crop Till You Drop= Success!!!!!

I have to give a big shout out to all my friends that made our crop fundraiser a huge success. The room was totally cute, and we had 39 croppers to fill it! The food was great, goody bags were full of fun stuff, and the prizes were AMAZING! And all of the above were DONATED by our wonderful friends and co workers.

Everyone seemed to have a great time,

And the girls made $457 EACH for their trip! Alexa made just over $700 total that night with her sales included. WOW!

I really can not express enough how much it meant to me to have such support in this. I must have the best friends in the whole world!

Star of the Week

Sophie was FINALLY star of the week in her class. They had all the names in the bowl at the beginning of the year and drew a name for each week. She was second to last. So nearly 3/4 of the way into the school year it was her turn. She told me it was the best week because Monday she got to bring in her poster:

And, yes, she made it herself, with limited help from me (I cut out her name and printed pictures for her).

Tuesday: Mommy came to class to volunteer

Wednesday: she had pizza lunch with her teacher as a reward with some other students

Thursday: no uniform day her class earned

Friday: she got to bring in a box of items for show and tell and it was a half day!

Not a bad week for a first grader!
