We are homeschoolers...
so there is no other students to exchange Valentines Day cards with...
And we are in Florida...
so we decided to do something new and different!
All of the children filled out their Valentines!
In the FROM: column was their name!
In the To: column ...
they wrote messages!
You are awesome!
God Loves You!
Happy Valentines Day!
God Bless You!
Have a wonderful day!
A few of the kids that cannot write well did smiley faces, hearts and sunshines!
Disclaimer: not Sam but instead Madeline, Abby and our younger boys.
And we passed out chocolates with our Valentines!
On Valentines Day we went to the park and handed them out!
Their just happened to be a free community picnic and an art show,
So, we ate lunch for free and then handed out our valentines!
All the children
LOVED doing it!
And it was well received by everyone!
Such a simple gesture
and yet spreading
kind and encouraging words!
This is the first time we have done this
and the children have already asked to do it again
Kids on a mission!
People at the park were happily surprised!
It was a chilly day for Florida but thankfully it warmed up to 64 degrees later on in the day!
These two girls are eating their chocolates kisses and looking at their Valentines.
In the back ground are Sam, Ben and Luke passing out more Valentines!
Many of our kiddos are a bit shy so this was challenging for them!
Luke is not one of our shy ones!
Sam is very "outgoing" so this was right up his alley!
Luke made many new friends!
Good job kiddos!
Happy Valentines Day to YOU!
Mia had to go beyond her comfort zone.
Sadly, walking up to strangers is not hard for her but reaching out and being the first to speak (wishing them a happy valentines day) is challenging.
Madeline has many speech issues but she happily greeted and
shared her good wishes with others!
Very thankful for this day!
We actually moved from one rental property to another today and really didn't know what we would do for the "down time" between places...
God had other plans!
And they were wonderful!
We were blessed to get into the next place earlier than usual!
Then find time to get settled and make it to evening church!
Maybe next year we will do bible verses for those that are ready!
