Just “Write” Teacher Appreciation Gift

{ Day 3 } of Teacher Appreciation week! Today we gave the teachers a “Thank You for making my year just write” gift – and included a jar full of colorful markers. I’m going to be honest – I thought I bite off more than I could chew this year. I wasn’t sure […]
