I have been in the process of re-organizing my Photobucket account, hoping to keep things in date order in some way.  I'm also running out of space, so I've been deleting duplicates, and it looks as though I've deleted or moved stuff posted to this blog.  Awesome.

So, to add to the very long list of projects to do, is to update all the photos that are now blank.

Which will probably never happen.

Sorry, future A and E, hoping to find great photos to go along with the stories.

Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is a really big deal when you're in Elementary or Pre-School.

For school, A was charged with decorating a heart for the class bulletin board.  He chose to use this foam robot we made last Valentine's Day, crayons, and pom poms to decorate his heart, and was thrilled at Daddy's idea to make an arrow through the heart.

E brought home lots and lots of projects.  Here's one of them, about which he said, "look what I made!"

For the classmates and E's teachers, we made Valentines:

..but SOMEONE played with and lost a bouncey ball, so we instead made Hogs and Kisses for A's teachers:

 I tried to make them a special lunch...

but A didn't eat his, saying "I don't like peppers!"

Speaking of lunch, A told M he HAD to make me lunch for Valentine's Day, and he did.  I didn't take a picture, but I had a heart shaped grilled cheese sandwich, grape tomatoes, babybel cheese, and yogurt.  When A told me what he asked Daddy to do, he said the lunch was supposed to be a firetruck shooting water all over the sandwich.

I hope you had a wonderful and fun Valentine's Day too!
