Celebrating Love

I wish we could have sent you a valentine. Unfortunately, the U.S. recently put a stop to all mail coming from Uganda. But let me show you what we would have sent you (if we could have):

First, we would have sent you a crayon heart.


I found simple instructions here.

We also would have sent you a sparkly valentine love message, like this:


(Though it wouldn't have been able to come with such an adorable face attached!)

Last week, in honor of Valentine's Day, we began a ribbon of Kindness Hearts. Each time the children did something kind for one another, they chose a felt heart to add to the ribbon. Even Mama and Papa got to participate :).


We like to honor the kindness of our children at all times, but this was a fun way to celebrate the season. 

And, finally, with the slight chance that you haven't actually smiled yet while reading this post, here's a final photo: our oxen, Valentine (proudly named by yours truly).


Hope you had fun celebrating love!

How did they stop all mail coming from Uganda?

Well, James, that's a great question. And one I don't know the answer to. The U.S. has stopped mail from coming in from several countries, and ours happens to be one of the "lucky ones." I believe this is in response to the attempted bombing via the mail system from Yemen, but don't quote me on that.
