Interruptions are typical for us in the middle of a school day. Rain, for instance, draws us outside and causes requests for trench digging and boat building. But today the distraction was tape. The boys asked to use the masking tape. I said yes, and didn't pay attention to what they were doing with it in the school room.

Mouth eating air head valentines. Who wouldn't like one?

Chase is hilarious sometimes. Just look at that tongue. He cut one valentine heart after another and until all 12 were cut. He wasn't as eager to write his name on them, so we spread that out over a few days. (I am so thankful for SonShine Club, where we have the opportunity to share valentines with friends!) Meanwhile, Scott (his super talented Daddy :) was building this frog mailbox for him from a cereal box:
Because, well Chase is so frog crazy. His valentine for classmates looked like this last year, with help from Scott:
(And here's the one Scott made for him personally last year):
His frog craze began at age 3 when he first heard a Froggy book read aloud at library story time. Since then, he's requested to dress like Froggy for Book Character Days (SonShine Club) and Fall Festivals at church.
My sweet Froggy! :)

These were fun to make and give away! I'm thankful to have students to make them for. I bought a bunch of Big Red gum packs without knowing how I could use them. Just in time, I found a creative idea on Family Fun for Cupid's Arrow - made with a pack of gum, wooden skewer, and tissue paper. (I made them with a paper heart arrow instead of a gumdrop.)Martha, made with paper, a staple and one stick of gum.
