Room 9 was supposed to decorate their Valentine boxes Thursday, but they did such a bad job on their math that they lost their free time.

I didn't bring any valentines to school yesterday. Because I couldn't find 36 cards that were suitable. (I work as an aide in 2 second grade classes. ) I drew the line at passing out Miley Cyrus or Spiderman cards. They didn't even notice.

There was so much sugar around at lunch time. I was giving a teacher a break at lunch (it was raining so we were stuck in the classrooms) and when she returned and told them they could have something from their valentine baskets, they went wild. Jumping and hooting and hollering. And this was after they had had brownies, cupcakes, and rice crispy treats. Can you say sugar MANIA?

Ernest says the 7th grade was equally crazy. Re the science class after lunch: "Mr. M. didn't like it. My science class doesn't listen anyway, but today was even worse."

And my Valentine will be? Hugging my boys.
