I vividly remember in elementary school I missed a lot of Valentine Parties. It seemed to be the time of year I always got sick. I always had my cards filled out a week in advance and then I'd have to send them with a sibling to get my teacher to hand them out. Obviously, it has scarred me deeply. :)
Today was a half day for the kids and then there is no school tomorrow. Therefore, the Valentine's Parties were today. I am Room Mom for Mollee's 2nd grade class so I have missed Tavis' other parties (Fall and Christmas) since they are always at the same time and it would be rude for the person in charge not to show up. This time they were at different times and I was so glad I got to go. Tavis was so excited to have me there and wanted me to sit with him during each activity, it was nice for him to be so excited I was there. Here he is playing "H-E-A-R-T" (not Bingo!) with his best buddy Chase.
Mollee's party was also full of excitement (she has a very "excited" class). Here she is trying to win a contest stacking the most hearts.
It was a good (but very busy) day. Just like when I was young I've been a little "under the weather" the past week, but I made it through two parties, took the kids home, took a nap, and headed back to school for Parent/Teacher Conferences. Needless to say, Little Caesars cooked dinner tonight!
