My Crafty Attempt for Sra. Downes

I never know what to do for teachers for end-of-the-year gifts. We usually do a gift card, but Sra. Downes is so special to us, I wanted to get her something to go along with the gift card she would love year after year. So I asked one of my most treasured friends, who was my idol when I was growing up, and is now a school administrator herself (thanks Elisa!) what teachers "really" liked. She gave me this idea, which is much easier said than done, truth be told, but super fun and cute! I think it turned out okay, especially considering I'm not all that patient or crafty. I hope "Bea" will "be" reminded of my little "B's" whenever she sees it - The 4 B's love her so much! In fact, Britt was a bit sad all day long yesterday, his last day of school with her, because he is going to miss her so much come third grade this fall. As soon as I woke him up yesterday morning, I said, "Ohhhhhh, I don't want you to be a third grader!" And Britt said, "Me neither! I won't have Sra. Downes." She is the first teacher he's had that he really fell in love with. He said he actually "felt like crying" when he left her classroom yesterday. Both he and Brailey had the time of their lives in her class, and they learned so much! She is absolutely an amazing teacher, and we feel so blessed to have had her for both Brailey and Britt's second grade years. "B," for Bea, for Best Teacher in the World and for The 4 B's!


  1. What a great idea! Bea is awesome! Brailey and Britt were so blessed to have her.

  2. These are some great tools that i definitely use for SEO work. This is a great list to use in the future..
