Happy Valentine's Day!

The girls renewed their love for art during this Valentine season. It's been there, lurking, but there has been much more pretend playing than sitting with markers and scissors during the last few months.

I found some very cute Valentine animals at this website, and we made several.

Delaney preferred to follow the directions herself, and made an adorable dog.

Sophie did all of her own cutting, and surprised me with her skills.

Once Sophie made her first animal, a cat, she was addicted.

She also made a bee, a fish, a ladybug and a lovebug.


A homeschooling friend organized a Valentine's Party this year, and we made plans to go.

Delaney and Sophie had fun signing their first Valentines.

Delaney illustrated most of hers.

Sophie got tired of writing her name after about five cards. She decided to draw cute little guys on each card instead, and added a heart sticker.

The party was fun. Lots of families attended and the girls had a good time.

Delaney enjoyed watching the older kids play checkers. She told me later that the oldest boy had tried to shoo all of the little girls away so they wouldn't wreck the game, bribing them with cookies and candy. She said she didn't want to leave the game, and told him, "I am five years old! I am not a little girl like them, and I WON'T wreck your game." He relented, and she behaved herself as she had promised.

Haha...I am glad she is not afraid to stick up for herself. ☺

After Delaney and Sophie finished exchanging Valentines, they rummaged through their bags, finding all sorts of goodies and cute cards.
We hope your Valentine's Day was filled with love and sugary goodness too. ♥
