We had a week filled with Valentine activities. The children made felted heart pins for moms and dads, worked on their Valentine pouches, and at home, made their own Valentines to give to friends! It's a special moment when they get to earnestly open up their Valentine holders in anticipation of a friend's token of friendship! We have sung many Valentine songs together and heard the story of Missy Mouse and Bitty Bunny, who also think of just the right something to give to their good friend.
Our guinea pigs came outside one day while it was so sunny, the first time in awhile. It may be the awhile before they do it again since Fran managed to escape under the neighbor's porch. She's back now, safe and sound, but expressed her dislike of being caught.
