More Than a Valentine

So, I went to Eli`s Valentine party at school today. This was the condition of the classroom when I got there ...

That class knows how to party!

They had a pj day, and played games and watched "Mr. Popper`s Penguins". There were snacks for about 10 classes!

What was so great, though, was watching Eli with his Valentines. The other kids in the class were tearing through them, ripping off the candy and quickly discarding the ones without. Eli, though, went through his box SLOWLY! He read each one carefully and then got up out of his seat and went to that person and THANKED each one for giving him a Valentine. He was so incredibly sweet and I was so proud of his gratitude and manners.


  1. Now that's a party! AND that's one polite and gratitude filled young man! :)

  2. Wow- that's a lot of loot! He sounds so sweet :)

  3. Such great character being shown. Great seeds were planted and now sweet fruit is growing. Great job Mom.

  4. That's impressive! You're obviously teaching them right, Nicole!

    Bet the teacher slept well last night......


We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
