Feelin the Love

Can I just say I love, love, LOVE 5 and 6 yr olds? They really are what is best in the world. Yesterday was our Valentine's day party. Most of these kiddos had never experienced a Valentine's day party and they were sooooo excited! Watching them go through their valentine bags and see the cards and treats, it was like watching Christmas. I have one student who wasn't at the party and I was so impressed with the kids who persistently worked to make sure that kiddo had a treat too.

I love Kinders. I love how much they teach me.

I love those dinner conversation laughter moments. Ryan's quick wit is a constant surprise. I felt like time froze for just a split second while I took a mental picture Monday night. I love my family.

I left the school without my computer. Or any work. It feels so strange to walk out with only my purse.

Todays highlights-
Watching the primary kids gain knowledge and confidence with the scriptures. Even the 3 yr olds can find the title page and the index! I loved how they hung on every word of the story. I loved some of the older  ones, who think they have heard all of the stories, say "wow! I never knew that!"

Taking a 2 hr nap. Glorious!

Writing an email to a friend!

And fav moment- Ryan running down stairs excited to tell me about the "perfect" source he just found for his college research paper. So fun to watch hard things become strengths for him.

So in love with my story today. So tired last night I was falling asleep at the French bistro. Who falls asleep eating french pastry???!! Today was full of family and beauty- a winter drive thru the Columbia Gorge and tears and laughter with family at my grandma's cousin's funeral. I come from good, good people. And most all, I love that Ry wanted to stay up until 2 watching a movie with me. This story is a good read.
