Karate and Valentine's Day
Call me a kid, but I used to love picking out valentines as much as selecting a new lunchbox! So, I always have to make a big deal about having the kids select valentines. Jace had to have the Super Hero box which included Thor, Captain America, The Hulk, and Iron Man. Eli knew immediately that he wanted the Star Wars valentines. So, a week later we opened the cards to have Eli write on them for his kindergarten friends only to find out there wasn't enough space for him to write on (it was a sucker valentine wrapped in plastic). So, scornfully, I had him use the label maker to write his "to" and "froms." Now, being a teacher, I figured I would take a little heat for not having him "write" his own names on his card.....at least he helped type the names into the label maker...haha!!!
Last year, we started a tradition of getting the boys costumes instead of candy for Valentines Day. Green Lantern has been the "it' movie around our house...so they both got costumes from Green Lantern.
