We celebrated Valentine's yesterday with our homeschool group. There were 60+ people in attendance, and we all had a great time. Unfortunately, I was so busy having fun & visiting with friends that I didn't get many pictures. From top to bottom, Abi showing off her bag of "goodies". The Valentine pencils we handed out instead of candy or paper cards. And Jeff's favorite--a big bowl of conversation hearts.
The kids also used fabric markers to decorate quilt squares that will be sent to a lady in Tennessee. She puts the squares together to make a child-size quilt & then delivers them to battered women's shelters. Children who come in with their mothers receive them. I really wish I had gotten pictures of the quilt squares because the kids did a great job on them, and I pray they'll bring comfort to a child going through an uncomfortable situation.
"This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers." 1 John 3:16
I edited this post to add this picture of the quilt squares that my friend, Samantha, was kind enough to send to me. :-)
