Happy Valentine’s Day!

Grace made this beautiful Valentine on Sunday at church. She was so proud of it that she presented it to me as soon as church was over.   It tickled me because it says, “Tweet Me!” and “Text Me!” and Grace really knows what those means. She’s forever asking me, Who are you texting, Mom? and What are you texting? So anyway. I hope you have a great and happy Valentine’s Day today. Tell someone you love what they mean to you today.

A Rainbow Scavenger Hunt

rainbow scavenger hunt for preschoolers

Grace has been enthralled by St. Patrick’s Day ever since she was back in Tweenie School (that’s what she called the daycare she went to {and adored} from birth to age 2). During the month of March, a scheming leprechaun visited Tweenie School when the kids went outside or took a nap. He made messes and played tricks on them. The teachers set a trap for him, and he filled it up with chocolate coins. Every single day, when I picked Grace up from Tweenie School, she would squeal and tell me about those tricky leprechauns, waving her arms wildly … Read more
