A teacher's gift

Tomorrow is the last day of school for our little grandson and he and I decided to make one last project for the school year. This one was for his teacher. Actually he has two teachers and so we made two potted plants.

It was a simple thing to do. We found the pot on sale a couple of weeks ago and just bought the plants, some potting soil, some small rocks and then after we re potted all the plants together, we made a sign of thanks for the teachers and taped it to a dowel with double sided tape.

We also added a little turtle with a small turtle on its back. A sweet little extra cute thing we added. This was our favorite thing. The pebbles will hold the dirt in place and hopefully the plant will make a nice houseplant for some time for his teacher.

I think the sentiment is perfect, "Thanks for helping me grow." I know his teachers deserved this and much, much more because they have been great inspirations for out little guy.
