I survived Valentine's Day

Whew! Anyone else get completely wiped out by yesterday's sugar high extravaganza?! As tiring as yesterday was we did get to open our awesome gift from our class valentine exchange partners from Miss Long's class in Ohio! (My kids asked if that was in a different country! Ha!) Miss Long's class got us this super cute book that I had never heard of called "My Heart is Like a Zoo." Every illustration is an animal made out of hearts. AND they even made their own version. My students loved it! They are begging for us to do an art project with hearts just like all the illustrations in the book. *Something to do for inside recess???
Then when I got home I opened my AWESOME gift from Kelly at Busy in Kindergarten. LOOOOVE it!
I would love to show a picture of my smiling face, but my roots are BAAAAAD. Sorry!
Hope everyone else survived Valentine's Day!
