Chocolate Purses

30 08 2017

So they’re not *really* made from chocolate, but they’re full of little chocolate bars 🙂

I made them for the principal and guidance counselor at the elementary school.

Even if my boy has an unexpectedly good transition/year, it doesn’t hurt to be kind and thankful for all the things the people in my son’s life do for him and other children 🙂

I used double sided paper for these and used my Silhouette to cut them out. They’re small, so they were pretty quick and easy to put together 🙂

Those bags are amazing and you are so thoughtful! I hope you and son find tremendously intelligent , empathetic and supportive teachers to help both of you through this year!

Typically his honeymoon phase lasts 1-3 months. I figure this is the time to build bridges 🙂

Yes, but your child is entitled to an education and you can let their inexperience make you feel bad. Most schools are not trained even in their special ed departments. I am still sending you positive thoughts for success.

Thank you 🙂 we can always use those 🙂
I don’t know his guidance counselor. She came in after my other kids moved on to middle school. But the principal has been there a while and remembers me. Two of my other kids have had the same teacher my 5yo has now. I feel so blessed to already have some connections so I’m not starting from scratch. But this honeymoon phase most likely won’t last for too long, and those positive thoughts will be handy 🙂
