I believe I have one of the greatest jobs in the world running a daycare and getting to play with children all day long. However, the one major downer of my job is saying goodbye to those that have outgrown me and are heading off to school. One of my little ones is starting kindergarten on Monday, and she will greatly be missed!!

There are so many things I will miss about you, Hailey, but here are my "TOP FIVE":

1) your smile.

2) that you are always such a big helper.

3) your sweetness.

4) how you always compliment me on my outfit or hair, even on my frumpy days!

5) your infinite knowledge of every commercial jingle out there in TV land and how you get those jingles stuck in my head for days after you have stopped singing them. "It's not a sandwich, it's a Tortada." LOL!

Here is a little something I put together to celebrate Hailey's milestone. The image on the card and on the front of the backpack are Whimsie Doodles digi stamps. Currently over at Whimsie Doodles, one of their Doodlelicious Divas, Sheri, is hosting one of their Whimsie Wednesday Challenges with a BACK TO SCHOOL theme. You have until midnight of Tuesday, August 24th to upload your creations to participate in the challenge. You can check out all of the details here.

The template for the pencil box can be found in my previous post and here is a link for the backpack tutorial from SCS. My older daughter made the most adorable glass bead bracelet for Miss Hailey to go into the backpack. She will be very excited to get it as she is always complimenting Brittany on her bracelets.

Make sure to check out the challenge and to check out Sheri's back to school project. It is adorable!!!
