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!
