A Simple Valentine’s Day

Our simple Valentine’s Day celebration consisted of a favorite dinner at home and inexpensive but pretty flowers. We did allow ourselves extra cookies and drinks that we normally try to limit.  We are planning to eat out to celebrate when we aren’t so busy so we can enjoy it more.

The 2nd grader exchanged valentine’s at their Classical Conversatios homeschool class.  We just gave out candy, though I wanted to make a simple heart to go with it.  (He ended up wanting to work on his weekly class presentation more than usual this week, so we spent our time on that instead of the cards.)

We didn’t do crafts or baking even though I wanted to.  We did use the occasion to give my 7th grader a lesson on planning affordable dates  even though he won’t have to think of it for a long time.  I stressed the importance of coming up with things they both would enjoy.

How was your Valentine’s day?
