Mrs. Colton was an EA at William’s school. She worked with his class a lot in grade one. She wasn’t with him as much in grade two, but he was always happy when he got to talk with her at recess or while he was waiting for the school bus. She announced her retirement a couple of weeks ago and that made him very sad. He figured we should make a gift for her as well and I thought that was a great idea. So, we made another purse with another set of cards.
This time I used the Bella paper. I thought since she was retiring, she might like it better than the school papers. She loved it and told William that she would come visit him and make sure he was being good. It is just the start of summer vacation and he is already looking forward to fall when Mrs. Colton comes to visit the school.
