Backpack notes for the last week of September

Here are my backpack notes for the last week of September.  I forgot to take a picture of the one I put in my daughter's backpack this morning, so that's why there is only four.

Tooth Backpack Note

This week has been pretty busy, so only 2 backpack notes so far.  I didn't take a picture of the first, so here's the one from today.

My daughter had a dentist appointment yesterday, so I thought the tooth would be appropriate.

The tooth is cut at 5.25" from Baby Steps.

This tooth is so cute, I'll try to remember how cute this one is when my four wisdom teeth get yanked out on Friday.

The weather turned out to be beautiful today for the Juvenile Diabetes Walk at the Milwaukee County Zoo.  A big thank you to everyone that walked and raised money to help find a cure for diabetes!

A HUGE THANK YOU to a super nice guy and this year's JDRF Walk MC - Lance Allan, Sports Anchor from Today's TMJ4.  Thank you for giving up your Saturday morning to kick off today's walk!

Another big thank you to Peggy, the head of product development (the dept that I work in), for speaking.

There were over 7,000 walkers signed up for this year walk!

We took some time to enjoy the butterfly exhibit...

Peace, Love, Cure!

JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes

Hi Everyone!

Work has been crazy hectic this week, so that's why I haven't done any posts.

No posts tomorrow either, because I will be at the Juvenile Diabetes Walk To Cure Diabetes at the Milwaukee County Zoo.  The walk is always such a great time and of course, it's also for a great cause.

Here are some pics from last year.  I will post some pics from this year later on.

This year my friend and former co-worker (Lance Allan) is the MC at the Walk!  Thank you Lance for agreeing to volunteer your time.  We all greatly appreciate your contribution.

This Week's Backpack Notes.

Here are this week's backpack notes!  I finally decided that I needed to get a entire week's work done on the weekend, instead of trying to get one done every night.

More Backpack Notes. . .

Here's more of the backpack notes.  They are the only crafty things I've had time to do the past 2 weeks - a little crafting is better than none at all though :o)

Backpack Notes

Hi!  I hope everyone had a safe and fun Labor Day Weekend!

I wanted to share with you some School Notes that were inspired by the ones Lisa Falduto created for

Since my daughter eats lunch at school, I renamed the Lunchbox Notes to Backpack Notes.  I put them in her backpack after she goes to bed at night and she finds them the next day at school.  Well, I was only going to do these for my daughter at the beginning of her school year and then maybe sneak one in her backpack occasionally...BUT she really likes them and keeps asking me to make her some every day.

I have a third one, but forgot to take a picture.  She's saving all of them to scrapbook, so I will post once I get a chance.

Edited to add a picture of the "note" for tomorrow.
