Woohoo: How Cute Is This!

Today I came home from a long, long, training and felt drained and tired. Then my husband handed me a package and after finally opening it I looked  inside. It was a sneaker pencil case from my friend Cindy over at
In the Teacher's Lounge. How fabulous is this! It reminded her of  Pete the Cat's shoes. I don't even know what to say about this. With it I got a beautiful note (yup, not an email) that really meant the world to me. She is a great friend and blogger and if you don't know her site head over there ASAP. Thank you for bringing so much sunshine into my life and guess what? " I love my red shoe." I'm just walking along, singing my song. I love my blog friends so much. By the way, she bought this from Staples if you must have one. I am putting my color words or sentence strips for the mini pocket chart in my little shoe. The kids will love this so much.

I glad you got my gift so quickly! ;-) Thrilled that you liked it and it helped brighten your day!
One quick note of correction...I got the shoe at Staples. I know we all have spent many hours and small fortunes at Target, but this one won't be found there! ;-)

I am glad that you received something that helped you feel appreciated. I hope you can feel our virtual gratitude and appreciation for your ideas and your generosity. God Bless you. By the way, I finally found the pocket charts and stamps at target. They finally brought them to our targets. Woo Woo.

I just blogged about the cutest bulletin board border that I found at Dollar Tree that is PERFECT for a Pete the Cat bulletin board. It made me think of you and all of your cute Pete ideas. Check it out!
