9 teachers teaching

My daughter is in Pre-K this year and she has 9 teachers....NINE!  How in the heck do you end up with 9 teachers!  I guess it is just the kind of program she is in but when I was little I had two teachers. Note- I also had to walk up hill to school both ways in the snow... ;) Well, that is just how it is I guess, maybe more common these days to have more teachers.  Maybe it helps maintain their sanity. :)
As you can imagine though, I had to come up with some creative ideas for teacher gifts, cause that was going to get expensive.  Of course I couldn't not get them something, I mean they do sooooooo much.  With the events this year, I think they need a little loving for sure.  So I made some lemon sugar scrub.  Here is what the finished product looks like.  I had hoped to do more decorating on the jars but time just got away from me.  I do hope they like it anyway.  The little lemon is from the Lawn Fawn Make Lemonade set.
Of course, I also had to include a card with a personalized message for each, which looks like this.  I used my new Hero Arts stamps on this one.  I just love that little bird!
Anyhoo, I just hope that they know how much we appreciate them!  That goes to all the rest of you wonderful teachers out there, you know who you are, thank you for ALL you do!
