On May 22nd, a good friend of mine who was the homeroom Mom in 4th grade class planned an end of the school year party for the kids. She invited me to come which I gladly did. I always want to see my children in school. I used to volunteer but I didn't do it with this school year because of the many things we were busy at during the move to our new home. I miss seeing the kids regularly. Maybe next school year, I will be able to depending on the projects that we are doing at home.
But anyway, back to the party I was talking about. This is why I like the school where my children goes to because the population is small so it's a tight knit community where most of parents knows everybody. It is also advantageous for the kids because the teachers can really give each students an ample of time to hone their skills and academic development. I love that they don't only focus on academics but also spiritual and social aspect as well.
We served the kids Jojo potatoes, chicken strips, and fruits and veggies.
I still remember when my son just started kindergarten, everyone of these kids were little but now they are growing up. Some of them are taller than me already, whew. That's why I am called the Tiny Mom with a camera lol.
My son is very happy that he found a best friend in this guy. EJ said that he is lucky that Josh transferred to their school because they get along so well.
This year, the school is incorporating some new gadgets in the classroom. Each students will have their own Chromebook. It is a mandatory thing. I am thinking of buying my kids their own instead of paying for what the school has, we will just need to pay for the technology fee. This way, they can have their Chromebook back and use it again the next year if it's still in good condition. I dunno, I am just weighing the pros and cons. I will decide when it's time. I am starting to look for deals online. Any tips on Chromebook?
These kids are growing up right before my eyes.
Right after the party, I stuck around in the classroom. The teacher was probably wondering why but we planned a secret baby shower for her since she is pregnant with her first baby. The 4th grade parents came together and brought some snacks and gifts.
One of the Moms made these drinks, I thought they were cute. She said she saw the idea on Pinterest.
The homeroom Mom made these cupcakes as well.
It was a nice little set up. We put all of these together when the class and the teacher was in the other room. We talked to one of the teachers to work with us on this so it would be a complete surprise for her and it turned out great.
Getting pregnant for the first time is very exciting but it also comes with a big expense so having a baby shower is a way to get some things that you need when the baby arrive.
My son's teacher is very nice, she made learning so much fun that all of her students love her. I think that's the kind of teacher every classroom should have.
Opening the gifts was fun. All of her students crowd around her and helped her open every one of the presents.
The homeroom Mom had one box of diapers and each of the diaper has writing of the students on it. Messages like "You're cute but this stinks", "Dad it's your turn" and all that funny stuff that would make Mom and Dad smiles when they are changing the baby's diaper.
I did not buy any gifts because I know that all of the Moms that's attending are and I know that at some point, there will be doubles or similar things that she will get so I just bought a gift card, that way she can buy whatever she still needs for herself or the baby.
My son is very fond of her teacher and he is so excited that she is having her first baby.
Boys will be boys, it's fun to take pictures of them.
I wish that I could have gotten the Darling Voxbox from Influenster a day early before the baby shower, I could have given her the baby stuff that was in there.
The baby gentle moisture tearless shampoo and wash from Live Clean would have been perfect to use when the baby arrive. I will just give this to a friend who just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl as well.
Warmer weather means outdoor activities. I am always outside working on things with the kids so having a energy gummies to take after I ate breakfast is awesome. I am down to 6 pieces since I got this and it really keep my energy high while working in our yard or doing something with the kids.
The Darling Voxbox includes a coupon for one tub of of Country Crock butter. My daughter love to bake and she definitely put it to good use which makes my son very happy as he love the oatmeal cookies that his sister makes.

There is also a sample pack of the Duncan Hines Perfect Size for one which she devoured for herself lol.
I love the Mineral 89 Hyaluronic acid face moisturizer from Vichy. It's a great product to use on your face after a long day outside and relax your face after cleaning it. It feels so good. This Hyaluronic acid fortifies your skin and make it resistant to visible aging caused by pollution, stress to skin, and fatigue.
I also love the Therapy session hair mask from Eva NYC. It's a deep conditioning treatment that repairs and strengthens dry and damaged hair.
