"Children do not need to learn to be better, told what to do or shown how. If they are given access to enough of the world, they will see clearly enough what things are truly important to themselves and to others, and they will make for themselves a better path into that world than anyone else could make for them."

Happy  Valentine's Day! We started the day off with heart shaped french toast. I don't know what brought this to her mind but Dora insisted I call out words to her so she could practice spelling them.

Afterwards, it was a rush for my late morning sleepers to get ready so we could get Bubba to his doctor's appointment at 11:30. It was his post operation visit and everything looked well so we came home just long enough to let Dora gather her Valentine's box and cards and let the doggies out to pee so we could go skating with our local homeschool group.

"Look Momma, Watch me skate backwards!"

Lots of Valentine's Day food and icees:

Then the kids exchanged cards and hung out with friends for awhile. I love Dora's "Love Bug" box!


We stopped at Mcdonald's on the way home for a late lunch. The kids were really wore out and kind of zoned out on their different devices, Dora watching disney shows and the boys playing games. Bret fell asleep and took about a 2 hour nap! He just now woke up. As I write this Dora has been tired and cranky too and has been quiet in her room for about an hour now so I don't have a clue what she is up to, she might be napping too for all I know.
