Tomorrow is our co-op Valentine’s day party for all of the kids. The girls did cards, but that seemed silly for Sterling and Ruby’s class. I can only assume there aren’t very many child prodigies in there that can read, and since Sterling can spell but not write his name and Ruby thinks her name is spelled “Syt”, I decided not to go there. So I’m making paper boxes to put candy and a trinket in for each of their classmates. Oh yes, this is so much better than filling in the “from” and “to” sections in a dozen Valentine’s. While I’ve certainly amazed Sterling with my abilities to turn a couple pieces of cardstock into a lidded box, (thank you, Google search) I’m starting to think I didn’t make such a wise choice in all of this. I didn’t have anything better to do with my afternoon, I suppose.
