Happy first day of summer! Today was officially the last day of work for me for a little more than two months. So happy to have a little break from meetings and paperwork. Even though I won't miss the work I will definitely miss the kids on my caseload and my co-workers. Each year I like to give some of my co-workers a gift to express my appreciation for their support this year. As usual as for my end of the year gift to them I like to have a Hawaiian theme. As you probably remember I gave the same coconuts for my b-day party favors and the same chocolate coconut patties to my friends that were visiting from SF. It was so much fun giving these out previously that I thought it would be a good idea to give the same items out to some of my co-workers.
I was not able to get enough of the coconuts and patties so I also purchased some water bottles that have tikis and hibiscus carved on them. I included a Hawaiian punch mix for fun.
Here is a close up picture of the tags that I made.
Along with giving my co-worker's gifts I also give the kids on my caseload that graduated a card and a gift. This year I decided to make a card with our school mascot on the front for each of them.
One of my co-workers and I went out to lunch yesterday to celebrate the end of our year.
It has been a blessing working with the kids, their parents and my co-workers. I look forward to my time off to be refreshed to work with them all again. Have a fun, relaxing, and safe summer everyone. Let the fun begin!!! :)
