But, I love it! Especially homemade love.. Seen above is Ollie's card- box to take to school. He made everything himself with all recycled or reused materials (the LifeSavers were given to him, and he decided they fare better as decoration than as a treat. I agree.)
There are 20 kids in his class, so I did write the kids' names on them, but he did the rest.
The stickers were hand-me downs from my grandmother's collection, and the candy was pushed on us by another loving grandmother....
And, of course Eli is creative. Seen here in his undies and with plastic hearts over his "boo-boos."
See, love is grand.
I liked our cards the best as they were the only homemade ones, and Ollie did, too.
And, by the way, it was raining Saturday morning, and I saw a young guy riding his bike in the rain with roses sticking out of his jacket pocket. Que romantico! I loved it.
It really was a perfect day at the park. Throngs of children seemed to gravitate to dad, and to the dog...We made new friends as children leaped to try and touch the clouds, so happy to stretch after winter's hibernation. Soon, we'll have the park to ourselves again, but for now, it was refreshing to see other humans just out breathing and smiling. News from the galaxy, defeating evil forces, and storm troopers tomorrow.
Ollie is really trucking along with spelling, reading, and writing. With just a few simple letters, we came up with some great sentences. He thought it was hilarious to change the punctuation and say it differently. Who knew that "The man sat on a hat." compared to "The man sat on a hat?" compared to "The man sat on a hat!" would elicit such squeals of delight.
