Card for Miss Cassie
Yesterday was my youngster’s last day of daycare. These endings that symbolize new beginnings can be bittersweet, especially when a caregiver like Miss Cassie truly cared for my boy..
I found THE PERFECT card on the FIRST try for her.. which told her about what a blessing she is
and told her Thank You for sharing her gifts with my son.
And so she wouldn’t have his face fade over time, a picture to go with the card, and of course an informal toast with a Starbucks gift card.
How tough it must be to be a teacher, and to have to say goodbye each year, but there is hope that they will see the children in the halls the next year.
With a daycare provider like Miss Cassie, Oliver is growing up and moving on, after she took care of him for almost four years.. What sadness it must be to let go. It was very difficult to say goodbye.
She couldn’t even open the card while we there, because she was already having a tough time holding it together (me, too).
Much Love to Miss Cassie.

  7. What a wonderful card and adorable photo! I'm sure she will treasure it forever. Teachers and caregivers don't always get the appreciation they deserve. It's such a blessing when we have people we can truly trust with our children. Their impact will last a lifetime.Congrats on the next stage of your life too! It is bittersweet to move on. With three sons I'm ready but also sad when we pass into a new stage. Time moves too fast!

  15. Knowing many passionate teachers, I'm sure Miss Cassie is going to miss your son and is probably grateful for having met him and you. They're as touched by their students as the students them. I love it when these meaningful, blessed connections occurs — so glad you're honoring and recognizing it too — those moments can be so rare!
