Happy Valentine's Day!!


I don't know about yours,
but my Valentine's Days are always filled with hearts and flowers,
bubble gum, temporary tatoos, candy hearts, and chocolate.

I get beautiful handmade cards
and stick drawings of myself
proclaiming me both an angel and an angle.

You just can't beat spending your days with kids.
And, getting paid to do it?
Well, that's just the icing on the cupcake.

I hope your day is filled with sticky kisses
and homemade cards. However it is packaged,
I hope you know that you are loved.

You are, my friends, you are!

Can you believe that's a scan of a card I received today? It was made entirely by a second grader. No joke.

The Valentine is beautiful and how special to get sticky kisses and homemade cards. It sounds like your day was so special. My Valentine is taking me to the beach tomorrow for three days. Oh how I am looking forward to that.

I thought it might be a vintage card. If you're like me, you'll cherish it always because it was handmade. You are such a treasure to your students. I know that because no 2nd grader would spend that much time and effort on a card if you weren't.
I will try to remember daily that I AM loved. Best wishes to you every day,
from a retired 1st grade teacher (my last 19 years)
