So, Valentine’s Day is not my favorite holiday and we rarely do much to celebrate it. But, in general, I am a big fan of traditions and in celebrating. I also seem to really like themes (who knew?!) and decorations. I didn’t do much for this one, but I changed out our normal boxes for hearts on our homeschool to-do list and we made some heart decorations for around the house. Ethan copied down each part of the definition of love from 1 Cor. 13. Micah made a heart paper chain. The cool Jesus watch was from CBS (which everyone is loving btw!). Also, I got a pretty amazing card for tutoring for CC – isn’t that so clever?? We had the pleasure of hosting Grandpa Russ and Aunt Ashley and Caleb for dinner on Valentine’s Day. I made Grandma Cleve’s lasagna recipe – a hit with everyone, of course. Plus – lasagna is red. Win!
Grandpa Russ was in town only briefly on his way to Mexico for Mike’s brother’s wedding. Mike flew out with him the day after Valentine’s Day and Ashley joined them the following day. It sounds like everyone had a lovely time.
Meanwhile, Micah reached a milestone: he competed the whole monkey bar set at the park by our house. I didn’t get a video of him actually completing it, but he did it a bunch of times that day. Did I mention that the weather here that weekend was amazing?! We had 70 degree weather on Sunday. The next day…3 inches of snow! We love Colorado! =) I didn’t snap any pictures of E because he was busy playing football with neighborhood kids.
Also, we made cookies and put ice cream in them…yum! And we watched Fantastia – the old one – and were not incredibly impressed. It was okay, but pretty dull. =)
