This year, to the amazement and shock of our friends and family, we made cards. Simple pink postcards, with a heart decal in the middle, a heart sticker on the top and a note from us. Nothing fancy. Yet, with three kids helping, it did take quite a bit of time and coordination. All in all, we made 20, for our closest friends and family. Then we mailed them. On time, even!
I love the spirit of Valentine’s Day. It’s a day to pay very close to attention to the love we give to people in our lives. It’s also a day to get lots of smiles and hugs. We don’t need cards and gifts to celebrate that. But I have to say, that making the cards was a loving gesture that made us happy. We felt the love go into every card, every message, every signature…
What does your homeschooling family do on Valentine’s Day?
Oh, and BTW, Happy Valentine’s Day, with lots of cyber hugs to you all!
