Today we had the Co-op Valentine Party. The kids were wound up all day long with the excitement of it all, but we had a good time. In history, the Upper Elementary kids read about the California Gold Rush and then panned for gold. The JH/HS kids painted their Chinese vases. (Unfortunately, these don't look very Chinese). It was spring-like weather today, so the little guys played outside as often as they could escape.
At the last Co-op meeting, Miss Kathy helped them make the cutest boxes for their Valentines! Ben made a parrot and Nathanael made a Lion.
Tonight we had Becca's Birthday cake. On Friday, Grand-
parents, Uncle Mike and cousin Hannah are coming to visit from Indiana, and there will be an "official" party at the skating rink!
