Happy Valentine’s Day

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

Dear Friends,
Happy Valentine’s Day! I am thankful for all of you, and I count it a privilege to write and encourage you in your journey. You are a blessing to me.
What are you doing today to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your family? It does not have to be elaborate or expensive. Some of my favorite Valentine’s Day memories include making cards at home and baking some cookies. Tell your family that you love them and write little notes.
Do something for your husband. Cook something he likes if you are not able to go out on a date tonight. Have some quiet time together tonight after dinner and talk. Tomorrow night is date night, and if it has been a while since you went out, make plans to go out as soon as you can arrange it.
Another fun thing we have done for Valentine’s Day is a verse search with the word “love” in the verse. We talk about how we are to love God and others as we looked up the verses and read together. For handwriting practice, your students can copy a verse or two.
Yesterday’s email about lists had responses from many of you. Some of you said I nailed it on the head with re-writing lists, and I heard from a few who stress out about making a list and do not have one at all. I love the variety among my readers!
For those of you who wing it without a list, I encourage you to build a notebook for your home routines and things you want to accomplish. It will help you find a focus each day.
Today’s Zone Mission is to wash your bathroom rugs and wipe down your washer and dryer.
Your Home Blessing for today is to declutter paper and magazines.
My menu plan for Thursday is chicken and a salad.
Have a great day!
