A Tale of Three Valentines II
It's that time of year again! And this year, Laura is in on the action. Both Clare and Danny stayed consistent in their choices of valentines (although if they had offered Greek Hoplite or Roman army options, that would have been Danny's preference). Surprising no one, Laura chose princess cards.
For their own surprises, this year I tried to tap into individual interests. For Clare, we have gel pens and hair bows, both of which are hot items among fifth graders this year. Danny's gift is partially incomplete. In addition to the Genghis Khan book, he'll be getting a kids' version of The Odyssey (delivery delayed due to the Icepocalypse). Finally, to add to the precious princess dolls she received for Christmas, Laura is getting the princesses from Frozen, the latest Disney princess movie and the soundtrack to which has been playing in our house nonstop.
To top it all off, we've had lots of family time together, Tim and I get a date night on Sunday night, and school resumes on Monday. HAPPY Valentine's Day indeed!
