         Woot! Woot! 
 I have finished my task with the reading bags for my son's 2nd grade class. 
Velcro has been sewn onto 67 reading bags and they are ready to be handed off to the next mom, who will now serge them all!
I am feeling like a rock star! 

Why 67 reading bags?

As most of us know, teachers spend much of their own income to help supply their classrooms. Which to me is unfathomable considering how, most, are incredibly underpaid and underappreciated.  
With that beind said, at the beginning of the year, an amazing mommy volunteer, named Annie, came up with the idea of having a  "Wishing Well". Here  teachers/staff would be able to voice their wishes and/or needs for their classrooms. 
Through donations and volunteers, the wishing well could be a resource to make their wishes come true.
The 2nd grade teachers made a wish for every child in their classrooms to have a reading bag and that is where I came in, along with two other moms with 2nd graders.
We took on their wish and we are on our way of fulfilling it!

And it feels great!

Now this "Rock Star" is signing off to go play a little air guitar!

  1. That is so amazing! How wonderfully blessed those teachers are to have such amazing parents! I teach preschool and know all about spending personal money on the kids and classroom. I love that you guys are helping them out like that. <3
