I get as excited as any kid about Valentine's Day. I love the hearts, the glitter, the glue, the mess. I love pink and red, and "Do you think he likes me?". I love making Valentines every year with Sloane, and the way that she always wants to do something special for her best friends. I love the full-of-wiggles excitement my students get just thinking about the parties and plans. I love the daily updates on how their mailboxes are coming along. I love the Valentine Mailbox competition in my class, and I love that Sloane won 2nd place in hers last year. (She was beat out by a robot. Go figure.)
I just love this day. I love that we set aside a day to say, "I love you. I like you. I think you're great! Thanks for loving me back." I hope you are excited about tomorrow, too. I hope that you remember all the people and all the ways you are loved. I hope that couple-hood is not the only love you celebrate tomorrow. I hope you buy your dog a special treat. I hope you leave her favorite candy bar in your bestfriends purse. I hope you offer a hug to a friend and a big smile to a stranger. I hope you write a real letter to your grandparents. I hope you call your parents and tell them how much you love them. Be sure to wish them a Happy Valentine's Day. Maybe even give them a "Happy Valentine's Day" from me. And keep one for yourself.
See you tomorrow with lots of loving-good links.
Sending you lots of love!
Don't you just love the card left on my desk today during inside recess? I tell you, it made my day.
