happy valentines day!
We had a really simple valentines day: work and school, regular dinner, followed by our annual trail of hearts. The kids were so excited to tell me about their school celebrations and to eat the insane amount of candy they received. I remember when valentines day was just about exchanging little cards and maybe there were some homemade treats at the class celebration. That is how I like it. Now it is like Halloween in February. Sigh.
Favorite memory: Dieter completing all his cards to his classmates late last night. It was a long, arduous haul, but he insisted on making a handmade, Dieter-style card for everyone and doing all the writing himself. I was so proud of him for completing the task. And a special shout out to Ken for staying by Dieter's side and helping him along the way. He has much more patience than I for such things.
Other favorite memory: Rainer walking up to me in the kitchen and plonking down his handmade card to me in the most unceremonious way. Super cute!
Happy heart day to all!
