Today is the first day of school for my students.  As a teacher it is a bittersweet time for me because I have to leave my own children and go back to work.  However it also an exciting moment because I get to meet the new twenty-five faces that I will spend enriching and teaching for the next 181 days of school.  I can only imagine the anxiety that back to school creates for children - especially if you are starting a new school.  Recently one of Cohen's friends from school moved to a new city.  This year is a big year for him because not only did his family move but he is also starting Kindergarten!  Since his birthday is coming up at the end of then month,  Cohen and I decided that we would send a card and a fun package to get him excited and feeling more confident about starting a new school as well as let him know how much we miss him here in Indianapolis.

I had to grab a few things for my classroom so we headed to Walmart to grab the items on my list as well as get a head start on our care package.  Cohen is constantly talking about his little buddy so I knew he would love to be able to choose the perfect card to send to him.  The choices seemed endless and Hallmark even has a specific section just for kids!

One card that really stuck out was the Batman card.  As soon as Cohen picked it up he realized that not only was it a card with his favorite super hero on it but it also turned into a poster!  This was the perfect choice for his friend's birthday.

This Hallmark Kids Poster Card was really neat and different from the other cards. They go from a big card to a poster just like that!

What makes purchasing this card even better is the Hallmark Card Reward Program.  When I purchase five Hallmark cards at Walmart (including the Hallmark Kids Poster Card), you earn a free card!  So now I'm just four cards away from a free one.  Gosh I love a great deal.

  After helping Cohen make his decision, we headed home to put our little package together for his buddy  We decided to include a fun coloring book with crayons, a notebook and pictures of Cohen to help the transition back to school seem a bit easier.  The Hallmark Kids Poster Card made the package because it was it was that extra special touch to let his friend know we were thinking about him on his birthday as well on his big day at his new school.

Now it's time for me to start prepping for my first day back at school.  
Wish me luck!
