So, yesterday was the last meeting of the year for one of my PPCD teams. One of the administrators graciously offered to host the gathering at her home (yippee--no reservations or carting stuff around...color me relieved!). I love hostess gifts and *try* to take them when I go places (not always possible, and if you're a good friend, sorry, not going to do it every time!), especially in a case like that where she was doing me a huge favor. So, I was going to buy fresh flowers. Then I started second-guessing myself...she's got 4 kids, what if someone's allergic...so I was like, fine, I won't take anything. But, when I was at a dollar store yesterday picking up chalk for the teacher gifts (dang it, I forgot to take a picture! Will have to make one for Kayci's teacher just to snap a pic...), I was checking out and I saw something and thought, that's it. So I went back in and found a cool bucket, grabbed a tie-on card and ribbon at the grocery store when I picked up the food trays, and voila--hostess gift. The card says, "have a ball with your kids this summer!" :) And I'm a happy girl.
