Sweet sentiments

Sunday, February 14, 2010 |
While going through some paper work this week, I stumbled upon this Valentine from Nicholas. He was in 4th grade and the assignment was to make a Valentine for your parent. The message inside needed to contain that weeks spelling words.
This was his message to me ...

Dear Mom,
Thank you for caring and respecting me on Valentine's Day. You are so lovable and I adore you. Ever since ancient time you have inhabitant me with appreciation. The affection of that has made me smitten with other intelligent people. Now I have an admiration to care and think of so many other people.
Love you tons,
Nicholas

When he called this morning I reminded him of the card and read it to him. We both had a fun giggle over it and he reminded me of how I cried when he gave it to me Valentine's day. What he doesn't know is that his teacher called me and shared how impressed he was with Nicholas' sincere affection for his mother. He gave me a heads up that I would need a tissue (or two) when I received my card.

I made these pretty posies for my students. My school encourages the children {and teachers} to make their own Valentines. I personally love that they do this. We have grades pre-K through 5th grade. This provides for a very wide range of ability and creativity. The mindset behind this is that parents are involved with their children during a school project which provides the perfect opportunity to talk and spend time together. What children don't realize is that they are more comfortable and relaxed during this time {they are focused on the project} and end up sharing more than they would during a regular conversation. The time spent with the child is priceless.

My husband is taking me out to our favorite restaurant. It's a small but upscale local place. The chef is incredible
 and has never ceased to amaze us with his culinary creations.
He also has something up his sleeve ~ details will be revealed this evening ;)

Hope you're all enjoying a little love today!
