My girls' attend Walorf preschool and as a teacher apreciation gift, I organized a book for each of the two teachers.
My firend Anri, who is a talented illustrator, designed the pages. We included the beautiful school pictures taken by Brydget. Both mums of kids in the class.
Each Daisy, as our class is named, was given two simply and sweetly designed pages with their name, photograph, and a few lines for a special memory.
On Monday mornings we often make it outside a little early to pick flowers to take to class. It started with violets and we have moved through daisies and heather as our 'weeds' have changed. So it was fitting for the girls to draw pictures of them giving flowers to their teachers.
I am amazed at how well the girls are able to communicate their feelings in such and honest and unguarded way.
Next week Anri and I will collect all the pages and make each teacher a book filled with smiling faces, happy drawings, beautiful memories and exubing love. Perfect!
