TAKs cards for Daughter

It is that time of year for all third and fourth graders and teachers...the dreaded TAKS.

My poor daughter has been stressing about these test since Christmas, (of course with a little help from school staff) She has been freakin'!!!  Since first grade my daughter has had learning problems but this year, with the help of one AMAZING Woman -- Her teacher -- she has been a different student and person.

So, of course, I made her two cards (one for each test day) for a little encouragement!

Excuse the black blob in the 2nd photo, wrote personal message before taking it (opps).

Until next time - happy scrappin'! ~ Carol

So sweet of you and I am sure it will make your daughter a little more at ease. Poor kid! Some kids struggle and try so hard! She will do great! I had problems with my eyes and reading books was very difficult. I had to memorize, so I know what it is like! Lovely cards!
