Last day of preschool & Kaylee's teacher gift

Today is Kaylee's last day of preschool
Man has she grown a lot this school year!
She has had a blast this year and has made a lot of friends
Her teachers have been great with her even when she had a few rough patches.
A couple weeks ago a folder got sent home with her that shows how much she's grown.  It amazes me, its showed her progress in September, January & April.  At the beginning of the year she could barely write a straight line or even come close to writing her name.  In September there was nothing in the name section, in January she was able to draw a K and by April she could write her first and last name.  It was the same was with writing numbers, in September she could only write the number 0 & 1, in January she could write numbers 0, 1, 5, 7, 8 & 9, and by April she could write 1-10 except 4.  I think that's pretty impressive.  She's also able to draw a few shapes {circle and square}. 
Here is a little comparison to see how much she's grown in just 9 months.
First day of preschool {8.27.12} & Last day of preschool {5.30.13}

As an end of the school year gift she had two options, to give her teachers a plant or some cookies.  She went with the plant.  So while I was out grocery shopping I picked out a cute plant {they don't do flowers at school} and this super cute water can for the plant to sit in.  I then made a cute little tag on picmonkey and attached it with ribbon.
I love the way it turned out!
