thank you for not letting my child drown

Tuesday, August 24, 2010 |
im one of those people who likes to write thank you notes and give small thank you gifts.
(i really like receiving them too!)
the boys took swim lessons this summer and i wanted to thank their teachers for being so patient with them.
you see, parker isnt the most co-ordinated child alive. or daring.
and nate, well...he thinks he is the greatest thing ever made and that all the girls like him. and that is really all that is important to him.
they both love swimming, but just arent very good at it.
this year, not only did parker (age 9 1/2) finally jump off of the low dive but...
nate went into the deep end.
(with their life guard teachers by their side)
im certain these teens werent paid enough.
so i needed to give them a BIG HUGE THANK YOU.
i got a couple of water bottles from food storage and with some packing tape, i taped a crystal light packet to the front of the bottle (i rolled the tape so it wasnt seen but easy to get off.)
i would have done a walmart brand gatoraide but i didnt want to go to the store and this is what i had.
then i got some kite string and tied it around a million times.
put some thank you tages that my boys signed and there you go-
a fast, easy thank you gift for any coach!
i also like to do this for my friends and instructors at jazzercise for their birthdays.
i believe it isnt always the cost of the thank you gift, but the fact that you say thank you.
(or happy birthday!)
