gifts, otters & instruments, oh my!

i'm pleased to report that everyone survived the first full week of school! and not just survived...enjoyed it!

here is what the girls took their teachers as "first day of school gifts." however, i must confess that the gifts didn't quite make it on day one! :)

as with the majority of our little projects, it was easy-peasy and budget friendly! i simply put a rubber-band around an old formula can, dumped out several boxes of new crayons and let the girls tuck them underneath in any pattern they wanted.

add some cute ribbon with a hot glue gun (it hides the rubber-band) and there you go!

of course no home-made gift would be complete without a cheesy tag to go along!

the start of school hasn't slowed us down too much...we've been busy doing all kinds of fun things. take a look...

**we went to an otters minor league baseball game**

**we also enjoyed an outdoor symphony orchestra concert**

{if you're wondering about this sweet face that keeps showing up in the pictures, it's my dear friend, cortney...or "aunt cortney" to the kids!}
