A thank you card

I made this card for JA's teacher. Last week I went to school for the appreciation tea for volunteers. JA had popped her head in to find me, but I was busy. So I picked up Zachary from his class at 11:30, went back to the tea for a bit, and then we headed home. On our way out, we decided to stop by JA's class to say good bye. They were in the midst of show 'n share. JA's teacher, Mr. Reimer, asked Zachary to join the class. Being the somewhat shy boy he is sometimes, he just backed up. So JA came and got him, and he went and sat with her. Before he did that, he opened up his side pocket on his backpack and showed the teacher his Lightning McQueen cars (Ramone, Charlie Checkers, Mr. The King, and a red Ligthning McQueen). He thought Mr. Reimer wanted HIM to do show and tell! After the 2nd child finished, Mr. Reimer announced "and now we have a special show and share!" So he let Zachary sit in the special chair, JA sat beside him and she said "Good morning 2 3's!" They replied "Good Morning Zachary!" He started to talk, showing his cars, where he got them. Then he said "Thank you for listening" (as per the rules of show 'n share!) and they all replied "you're welcome, Zachary!" It was so cute, and he just beamed from ear to ear!! For two days he spoke about it often! LOL!

So... I thought it was appropriate to send in a nice thank you card for the teacher for taking extra time out of his day to do that for my son.
