Valentine's Day

The kids enjoyed Valentine's Day and having a three day weekend (no school on President's Day). Emily waits all year for heart shaped pasta on Valentine's Day! (I still haven't figured out why she thinks it actually tastes better than plain ol' pasta . . . but she's convinced it does!). Anna and Samuel both thought that pink milk was really cool and Levi and Daniel couldn't eat enough pink mashed potatoes or heart shaped meatloaf. Many years ago we began hanging curtains of hearts in the kids' doorway(s)--with love notes or fun things written on them. The past few years it's been hit and miss with actually getting them hung up in the doorway (sometimes they've woken up in March to find that I finally managed to hang them up!) . . . but this year I made the deadline! Daniel seemed the most excited to read them, Anna seemed the most excited to run through them! Kevin moved his really quickly! (so he could walk through the door to his study)

Emily recently had a chance to do another worship dance at church. She put one together a few months ago, when she heard Mark Harris talking about his song "One True God" and it finally worked out Sunday to share it.
