1st Day of School Award


I have given a certificate similar to this, 
(but with kisses)
 on the first day of school, for years! 
I don't know where it came from...
maybe an old Mailbox??  

I thought it needed a new look and I 
wanted to change the kiss to a hug!

I have been inspired by so many
to FINALLY get rid of some of my
precious things junk in my classroom.
With 28 (2 moved away!) students on
their way to 1st grade, I needed more
room! It was HARD...but like a band-aid...
once off (gone) it feels so much better!

I will post before and after pictures later
today! If they haven't already emptied my
room to do carpets!

Bummer! They already emptied my room.
I'll do a post when I get it set back up!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I purged a bunch of "junk" this year too. It's hard to let go, but after awhile you begin busting at the seams. I didn't have room to put new things away. I can't wait to see your before/after pics. Thanks for the freebie. It's adorable!

  2. Your awards are very sweet. :)

  3. I love your first day of school awards!

  4. That's great that you are clearing things out. I am sure it will be a satisfying experience once you are done.

    Thanks for sharing the cute awards!
