Gifts From the Heart

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!!!  :)

  1. Lucky co-workers Colleen. Bet they all had a huge smile on their faces with the goodies you gave them. The multi-colored ink you used on the tags look so cool. Oh, and the food looks so deeeeelicious! Looks like you both enjoyed some Mexican cuisine. Enjoy your summer.
