Happy Valentines Day!
I started my morning by surprising my son with several Valentines posted through out the house. I placed one in each area of the house he usually goes. The bathroom, the dishwasher, cupboard, dog food, fish food, vacuum and in the car. He it was cute. The kids in the classroom were just a little excited for their party. It is hard to get any work done with so much excitement lurking in the air. I had bought special Valentine pencils to give each of the children. When I started sharpening them I discovered that they were a waist of $ out of 20 pencils only 6 would actually sharpen. Talk about frustrating. Aside from that set back the kids had a good day. We did have several valentine activities and delivered our valentines. We even a contest for the best homemade boxes. The kids couldn't wait to dig in to their treats. After all was said and done the room was a mess and I was exausted. However I still mannaged to suprise my son with a dinner out. Originally we were going to go to Olive Garden however we qui ckly changed our minds when we discovered that the wait was 1 1/2 hrs long. We finally settled on IHOP. After all who doesn't like breakfast! I hope you each found someone to share this day of love with. Just remember that the greatest Valentine of all was given to us 2000 years ago when God sent his son to die for us so that we might live in heaven with him for all of eternity.
