The tree I bought at the teacher supply store last summer (and mom got laminated for me) was the best purchase I made all summer. In August, it held summer t-shirts, decorated with pictures of what each new third grader did over the summer. In the Fall, it had multi-colored leaves. When Winter came, snowflakes clung to its branches. Before the end of the eyar, we'll have cherry blossoms and green leaves with some Haiku poems around it.
