I LOVE Valentines!
Alright, alright I am going to admit it. I have been bitten by the LOVE bug. I just LOVE Valentine's Day. I love the colors and the cards. I love the sayings and the sentiment. I just love it all. I have had more fun this year joining in Valentine Exchanges and sending well wishes to classrooms near and far. I have had so much fun I think it has to be a new tradition.
I came to work yesterday and my teacher neighbor brought some Valentine cards to look through. I had more fun looking through the cards and reading them. It made me remember Valentine's Day as a child. I used to get so excited as a child giving and receiving Valentine's. I guess some things never change. It's funny how such a simple thing can bring happiness and it's interesting how just sending a Valentine to someone can bring happiness within.
In my school not all children bring cards to pass out for Valentine's Day. Truth is, some families can't afford it. In the past we have always purchased extra Valentine's for anyone who did not have any to pass out. When I was sifting through the Valentine cards today and remembering how fun Valentine's has always been, I wanted to make sure that I could give that same kind of experience to the children in my class. So I have decided to update that file and I will share it here when it is ready...so check back!
And for some extra fun... I am having a FLASH sale in my stores to celebrate the LOVE of Learning!
