Teacher's Gifts - Decoupaged Clip Boards

Seeing as the year is coming to a close, we wanted to give the teachers a special gift. One that I hope they can actually use or at least find pretty to look at so I did some searching for some great ideas. I searched my favorite design, craft and idea blogs and let Isabel choose. She choose this idea from Design Mom. Luckily, there was also a tutorial on Michael'
Since her school is nature based, we looked for school/nature themed paper. I hope you enjoy the photos. Isabel also made a card for each teacher expressing her love for them with words and a thousand hearts.

By way of Boston - The Freedom Trail

I already had Boston on my mind as we are going there in 2 weeks and then came the latest edition of Family Fun magazine and it happened to have a very long article about The Freedom Trail. Now my kids are a bit younger so we have done and enjoy the usual for the preschool set: Harbor Tours, Children's Museum, New England Aquarium, Public Garden Park: the sweet bronze ducks from the book "Make way for ducklings" and the Swan Boats. They are great activities for many ages but you really should take a look at this article if you children are say 8 and up. What an educational and fun opportunity. They even recommend some books to read prior to your trip.

What are some of your favorite family memories or place to visit in Boston?
