My Love Bugs
In today's edition of, "Look what Forrest did!" we spy a little boy who has been caught finger painting with... wait for it... TOOTHPASTE!
Forrest's objective isn't to make us mad. He is curious. In fact, I remember that when Andrew blessed him as a baby, he said that he would have a "vibrant curiosity." He then blessed him to use his talents to build up and not tare down. What Forrest loves best in a situation like the one you see here, is to drive his toy cars and tractors through the toothpaste (or lip gloss, vaseline, etc). He loves cars so much and finds joy in driving them through new and exciting terrains. That boy needs to be reunited with his sandbox as quickly as possible!
Turning our attention to Valentine's day, in my previous post I wrote about how the kid's class parties crept up on me. By the time I had this huge mess on my table, I was feeling a bit better. We had work to do but the decision making and the gathering of supplies was done.
"I'm so glad we are in the same class" - Lottie
Star Wars Tic Tacs: "Yoda one for me" etc... - Eliza
"Happy Valentines Day Love Bug" XO: Henry
All of these ideas can easily be found on Pinterest.
The kids looked super cute the morning of their class parities. Forrest followed us outside and insisted that he be in each picture. His pajamas coordinated nicely, don't you think?
Observing my level of stress, Andrew offered to help Henry with his Valentine's box. It's a green lego. Henry was so proud; especially of the way his box opened.
The week of Valentines, Lottie's class was learning about the post office and mailmen. I thought their valentine envelopes were pretty cute. A real mailman came and picked up valentines that the kids mailed from preschool to their loved ones.
While the kids were busy enjoying their school parties, Forrest and I were invited on a play date! Maren invited some friends over to decorate cupcakes. The kids were so adorable. Forrest felt very special at his "prayed boot" - that's Forrest speak for "play group"
Contradicting everything I just typed, look at the cute Valentine I gave my kids...
Here are a few videos of our Valentine happenings.
