Zoe and Share Bear

A few weeks ago Zoe was chosen to bring Share Bear home from preschool.  She was SO excited it was finally her turn : )

Since we had Share Bear over Spring Break she stayed with us for two weeks rather than just one.  She went EVERYWHERE with us and we took A LOT of photos during that time.


She went to gymnastics and watched Zoe jump full turns .....

.... and she loved walking on the high balance beam.


She went to the library with us too.

She was so excited for story time to start .....

..... and was such a great listener!!


She also was part of Zoe and Ella's Kindergarten Registration.  She posed for a few pics before we left, but stayed in the car at school while we learned all about what Kindergarten will be like.



Of course Share Bear went to ballet class too ....

.... and had fun at a play date with friends Mia and Bella.


Share Bear was with us when we had Ella's kidney appointment .....

.... and she spent a lot of time just playing with Zoe and Ella in their bedroom, making art, dancing, being cuddled and being read to .....



Bedtime stories were a highlight each night ....

.... and so was going to Buffalo to spend a few days with Grama Dianne and Grampa Lindy (we didn't get any pics of Grampa though).


The girls played outside a lot -- and Share Bear did too : )



Visiting Auntie Jen, and meeting Quinn the Cat (who thinks she's a dog -- really), and Belle (who really is a dog) was another fun highlight.


At the end of the two weeks Zoe put together a story for her class about her time with Share Bear.  She used her favorite photos, colorful stickers, fancy decorations and drew a really neat picture of Share Bear, but I forgot to get a photo of that before Share Bear went back to preschool.

It was a lot of fun spending time with Share Bear again --- those little things teachers do really mean so much!!

What a sweet idea! If I teach Kindergarten next year, I will have to do that with my students! I love all the photos of your girls with the share bear!!

Hi again! Thanks so much for your comment on my blog! I currently teach 2nd grade, but I'm not sure where I'll be next year. I'm actually hoping for Kindergarten myself. As for tips, the best one I have is - Don't follow that stupid idea that you should not mix work and home. That's impossible as a teacher and it will cause added unnecessary stress. I do work at home and home at work. And that works out just fine. :)

Love that idea! It's so great that she was able to bring it so many places with her! Too cute.
