Back To School Before You Know It, And The Holidays Are Coming Too!

Just a few of the school supplies Ellie needs for third grade.

Here in the Pacific Northwest, school doesn't start until after Labor Day weekend, but I know that some schools in the rest of the country have already started.

Doesn't it seem like just last week that we were overwhelmed with the end-of-year school events? I'm still not sure how we got into (nearly) mid-August already and the countdown until school starts.

Despite the rushing around to buy school supplies and such, we have already started thinking about the holidays, including teacher gifts. Which is a little tricky since we haven't even met her third-grade teacher yet, nor her Hebrew school teachers, but we're pretty sure everyone likes a pretty piece of art glass. Right?

Ellie spent a big part of the weekend cutting squares of glass (with help from Scott) for a pretty dish that will likely delight a teacher come December.

It was hard to get a good photo of the colors Ellie used. But she had very good (i.e. expensive) taste in glass: Both the center rectangle and the pinkish squares include gold to make those pretty colors. I'll post another pic after the piece is slumped.

If you're looking for ideas for teacher gifts, consider this one, which was a combination mom-kid effort.
