This week is Teacher appreciation week at CCS.  We have the honor of spoiling our teachers. Teachers are a blessing in the lives of our kiddos.

Our teachers have really blessed the life of our daughter. From Music teachers to the Librarian to Coaches, every single teacher is important. They give so much of themselves to our kiddos. We are so thankful and we pray earnestly for teachers.

At CCS each day has a theme, Monday’s was to share your favorite Summer treat with your teacher. But it couldn’t be anything that had to be refrigerated. My daughter loves Lemonade, so we decided to be a little creative with our gift.
