Learning about love

Due to the holiday, we spent the last week learning about Valentines and loving each other. We practiced the letter ‘H’ for heart and memorized a verse about love.


In case it’s hard to understand, they quoted John 14:15 – If you love me, you will obey what I command.


The kids enjoyed a Valentine party at a nearby rec center, starting in the gym with trikes!


They had cookies, made a card and took home a lot of candy.


We threw a Valentine party for our friends, making cards for grandparents with potato stamps….


and cookies for Daddy (and ourselves). Sprinkles are very fun and I think between the kids, all three bottles were used up!


I used candy hearts to teach things like patterns, counting and “which one is different”. We also went on a Valentine scavenger hunt at the Mall.

The kids show off their counting skills – somehow, through all their calculations, they come up with the right amount!

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another as I have loved you.

    I like how they said, “That’s how you do it.” and “I did it”

    Missed 3 or 4 of your posts because there was no link to click on in the email you send out and I didn’t know hot to reach your blog. This one is cute, all the different ways to count six items.
