Wordless Wednesday - Flowers Anyone?




Saturday was May Day. We made some baskets for the neighbors using a neat template I found on Skip To My Lou. My daughter enjoyed running to the door, hanging the basket on the knob and running away. Turns out, we especially helped cheer up one of our neighbors. The day before we brought the flowers, she broke her foot. After all the smiles and thankful comments we received, we will be making this a yearly tradition.




My preschool daughter also decided she wanted to do something special for her teacher for Teacher Appreciation week. She loves to paint and painted this "Teachers help children BLOOM" picture. The only thing I helped with was painting the words. Seems we're spreading lots of cheer with flowers this week!

Aww, VERY cute idea! I don't think any of our college-age neighbor kids would be as nearly appreciative as yours were!

I love May Day! I think the idea behind it is so lovely and such a great opportunity to bring happiness to our neighbors and friends.

That canvas is adorable too! You can never spread too much happiness!

I hope you don't mind, but I added this link to our Show & Tell linky at ABC & 123: A Learning Cooperative (my other blog)
