Here is what we’ve been doing today. Today is the first day of Winter Break and we’ve had a calm and happy day, puttering and drawing and cutting and pasting little messages for each other. Every year I wonder why I don’t start making Valentine’s earlier – I find it very therapeutic. This year I drew and painted little pictures. Athena drew some little pictures and glued them in walnut shells. So that’s what I’ve been saving walnut shells for! For some odd reason, I always like to take a picture of the Valentine making detritus before cleaning it all up. Creative debris. Tonight we will have a little party – Artemis is making treats. I think they will be heart shaped. Happy Valentine’s Day, Dear Friends!
