They Came, They Bowled, They Partied

Today was our homeschool group's Valentine party, held at a bowling alley. The kids are invited to create a Valentine box to serve as a "mailbox". They are supposed to do this completely on their own (although I think some parents "help" a bit too much). Anyway, this is a 'tradition' in our group. We've done it for years now. Here are my children's entries. David did not participate. In fact, none of the 12+ crowd did. I think all 12 of the ones who showed up in that age group today were all boys!























No, none of my kids won a prize. Each age group was judged separately. But because I thought they each did a phenomenal job deciding what to make and making it, yes, on their own, I bought them each a prize myself.

I love the Valentine boxes idea! Tomorrow I need to corral my kids into Valentine mode. It's not easy to get them to sit down - without a toddler around. sigh... but it IS a fun holiday. Oh, and Caleb has NOT forgot to write James a letter. Poor kid has to wait for his mom to catch up with his desire. I'm SO behind. I think firstborns get put on the backburner too much, but how can that be fixed? Sigh again...

The boxes were great! I was surprised that James' box didn't win - I heard so many compliments in the hallway on that one. Great job!
