Valentines and Vomit

Wow, what a busy day! I have to say, my kids were GREAT!  One of the cutest things we made was a valentine mouse.
It would go well with Happy Valentine's Mouse
I made a packet out of Rachelle's awesome candy heart math activities for the kids to work on while others took their turn stuffing bags with their valentines.

Here are a few pics from our party:
Math bingo with Hershey kisses. Thanks Brooke!

Hot Potato with an adorable, heart-covered frog. {I thought of you, Heidi!}

We celebrated Chinese New Year, too!

And since I have a ladybug theme in my room, my cute room moms made this ladybug craft.
The day would have been perfect except I had one girl out sick (her mom said she was SO sad to stay home) and a boy vomit all over himself the hour BEFORE the party. He kept apologizing to me, poor thing. I felt SO bad for him. 

I can't believe it is only Monday. I still have benchmark exams and a field trip this week!

  2. I had the vomit thing happen 2 Valentine's Days in a row. I kinda thought maybe it was a jinx.
