I shared a round up of Valentine ideas earlier in the week. It will be here before we know it! Today, on a quick trip to the store for Gatorade, we picked up boxes of Valentines to address to friends. Homeschool party soon!
Helpful habits: I shared a fun little habit we enjoy, The Power of Paint with Water at Habits for a Happy Home. Plus, we spent some refresher time on our Home Rules. An article posted at Passionate Purposeful Parenting earlier in the week reminded me to pull the home rules back out. You will enjoy it too: Teach Kids to Add Energy to Family Life
We were at the store because Lil’ Buddy is under the weather. He’s feeling some better this afternoon. I’m so very grateful for health. We made it through since October without sickness. Praise the Lord!
