Gifts for teacher

As usual, I have a busy day ahead. I need to clean all the floors, take L in to get his glasses back, take the older boy to ref a soccer game and the younger one to practice for a soccer game and attend a community board meeting for my job.
Somewhere in there I should probably pay a few bills, do a load of laundry or two, get the younger son’s hair cut, and take a shower.
A seems to have recovered from part of his sickness, although he came home early from school yesterday after having an “accident” during lunch recess. He is now coughing rather regularly, but as it is a short day at school I decided to risk it.
But at least the sun is shining, which usually cheers me up.
We have something of a tradition with our children that when there are flowers in the garden, we cut a few blooms and have the boys present them to their teachers. L is all over this tradition, he loves to do it. The boy is big on kiss up points.
But A was a little hesitant to give the flowers to his teacher because it was a little embarrassing. However he was willing to take a pair of scissors to them. After he started cutting the flowers, he warmed up to the idea of giving them to his teacher. So today’s photos are of the flowers being prepared to go to school.

Love the tulips. I assume you don't have deer wandering through your back yard. Poor A what a miserable time he is having. Both G and A are still coughing at our house. It is seemingly endless. Still no pictures of L's haircut?
