Happy Valentine's Day!

Yesterday was my beautiful Kindergartener's Valentine's Day party. We had a fun time celebrating the occasion with her class. There were enough cookies, chips, and treats to make your teeth fall out right before you crashed from your sugar high!!! You can see Shelby going through her Valentines in the photo to the left.

Before the party, Shelby and her class participated in the 30th anniversary Jump Rope For Heart. I'll tell you one thing, there is nothing quite as comical as watching a gymnasium full of Kindergarteners trying to jump rope! Their method is as follows: quickly slam the rope over your head smashing it on the ground, once it hits the ground, hop over it, repeat with no rhythm. I did not take my video camera, but I wished that I would have because it was quite a interesting.

How are you spending your Valentine's Day? We've made no plans. It's just a typical Saturday around here. I'm watching a movie, blogging, and trying to get caught up on laundry...mostly at the same time. Whatever your plans, I hope that you have a wonderful day.

Yeah, I love how the kids come back all cracked out every holiday they can celebrate at school. I think I'll thank Boy One's teacher by giving him candy for breakfast next week. ;oP

So cute. I remember those days just like yesterday. We visited my daughter after school ended yesterday.... I just love seeing her classroom (she teaches 1st grade). Happy Valentine's to you and yours.

Oh, that must have been so much fun!!! I had my grandson yesterday after preschool. He came home with a diaper bag full of valentine's and candy. I cleverly left them in the car! His parents can deal with it! =)

I hope your Valentine's Day was filled with love, dear Tish.

Sounds like a fun and memorable day at school. My son also had a wonderful time distributing chocolates and homemade cards to his classmates and teachers.

Hubby and I went out to dinner, just the two of us, on Friday night instead of on Saturday. Then he surprised me with a dozen red roses. I think I'll keep him. *grin*
