Happy Teacher's Day!

Two holidays we don't have in Canada are Children's Day and Teacher's Day. Today was Teacher's Day, and also coincidentally Mother's day back home. We didn't get the day off like most of the other schools, but we got spoiled with tons of gifts from the kids. My loot included:

+ starbucks travel mug and coffee gift cert
+ 14 k gold earrings (!!)
+ mother of pearl letter opener
+ cake, rice pastries
+ box of exquisitly decorated little heart-shaped cakes
+ darjeeling tea
+ socks
+ hand lotion
+ pantyhose
+ Pepperidge farm cookies
+ cutely scrawled notes and cards from the preschoolers (aww!)

Not too shabby!

That's a mighty fine haul there! I like how pantyhose is seen as a good teacher's gift.
