I know it's Monday Made It day over at 4th Grade Frolics- but I have to share this amazing thing that happened to me yesterday. It gave me hope that even though humanity can be downright depressing sometimes, there are still amazing people in this world who are completely selfless! So, while I worked at the Animal Hospital for 6 years I met a client who needed someone to come to their house every 4-5 weeks and dremel her dogs nails and clean their ears because she cannot do it on her own. So, of course I said I would do it! Her pups are super sweet and she has pretty much become my mom here in Gainesville :) I still help her out with her dogs because they trust me and we have quite the system down to get them done ;) Well, she asked me if I would need any school supplies for my classroom and to send her a list. I said that would be wonderful if she wanted to help in anyway! Her and her hubby do not have any children, so all of the years that have gone by she made up for with this school supply shopping trip she did for me! I never in a million, billion years would have expected what I walked into when she asked me to come over and pick up the stuff. I pretty much cried and did a joyful dance at the same time! She not only bought the supplies on my list that goes to the students, but she bought enough to supply 4 students with everything on the list. Let me tell you, she is truly an angel sent from God to me because my worst fear was having a student come with nothing at all and me not having enough supplies as a first year teacher. I feel so blessed in my life to have such wonderful people and opportunities that have come to me. I thank the Lord every single day for the blessings, but it still does not seem like enough thank yous for everything. Nanette said she had such an incredible time shop[ping because she hadn't gone since she was a child in school! She said it took an entire entourage to get everything to the checkout counter and to her car :) I took pictures of everything so you all could see! The moral of this story is this: Although people can be mean, arrogant, and down-right rude sometimes, always know that there are amazing and gracious people in this world that are put there by God to balance the others out! :) Please say thank you to your volunteers, donors, and parents for their time and effort they put in to making sure you have a good year :) Enjoy these pictures of my kiddos' goodies and keep reading to see my simple and cute Monday Made It!
Don't mind the clothes and crocs :) Just look at all those boxes of supplies!
Each backpack was full as well!
Cool camo backpack ;)
Inside each backpack were the essentials that each student was asked to bring on their list!
Close up of the goodies.. These kids are going to be so excited!
Inside the box with each book bag- 2 reams of copy paper, clorox wipes, hand sanitizer, tissues, folders, paper, composition books, and spiral notebooks!
Holy moly!! :)
I felt like Christmas going through everything!
Look how adorable this backpack is… I just love those colors for a sweet little girl!
This stuff was all in a box that she made up for ME! Yes, she made a box of goodies just for my desk and supply cabinet :) Sigh… I just cannot say thank you enough!!
Juliet loved the boxes of goodies as much as I did… until she realized food was NOT involved :)
Anywho, today's Monday made it was a super simple one- but cute none-the-less! I took plain ole binder clips and covered them with Washi tape! :) I'm so excited I might do the ENTIRE bin of them :) haha! Here are some cute pictures so you can see how they turned out, I've still got more to do though!
Are these not fantastic!?? They are so simple! Just grab your wash tape, a pair of sharp scissors, and binder clips- then get to stickin'!! It really is a genius idea to make them cute :)
I hope you enjoyed this edition of Monday Made It and I really hope you take a moment to say thanks to everyone who helps you out! Always remember to pay it forward when you can because it will always come back to you in the end :) Remember to link up over at 4th Grade Frolics!
