language morning

My DD loves going to school. She adores her first grade teacher and the program offered at school. Last Friday, we were invited to attend the language morning. They basically showed a normal lesson and we were given information on how language is taught at the school. 
I was so impressed with the way everything went. The kids were all engaged, moving independently from station to station. The classroom atmosphere was so inviting and the activities meaningful and motivating. Being a teacher myself, I am always overly critical but I was really pleased. 

I took this photo during one of the activities - she just looks so happy and content. 

I based the layout on this sketch by Creative Scrappers. I love the many different layers! I replaced the stars with hearts and flowers and had to move the title since my photo is landscape.

All goodies are from the Swirlydoos October kit and some papers from the past kits. I fussy cut a lot (the grey flowers and the title tag) but you cannot really see it on this photo. 

Adorable little hearts

I will leave you with a photo of my men in my life. DS cuddling with DH after he just woke up from his nap.

Thanks for stopping by!
All the best, 


  1. Such a pretty page!!! I love all of the layers. I am glad she is liking school. My son loves it. I popped in there for something one day a few weeks ago. Everyone working together in their groups. His teacher is really enjoying his whole class this year. She said it is a great group of kids, one of the best she has had in her 23 yrs of teaching. She too is critical of her son's teachers. We have talked about it a bit. :) Cute pic of your DH and DS.
