Five For Friday Valentine Style!

Hello there!  Thanks for visiting today!  I continue to be home with my father who is in hospice and living with me.  However, I do go to work on Friday, and since we celebrated Valentines Day, I have plenty to report for this link-up!

Six days of the week I care for my father.  I have an incredible respect and admiration for all health care workers - it is A LOT OF WORK!  Every morning it takes 30 minutes to get my father out of bed; dressed; shaved;...Last week, my wonderful hairdresser came to the house to give him a haircut:

Gabi the Dog follows my father from room to room all day.  She even woke me up one morning when I didn't hear my father calling.  Dogs are amazing!
Last week we received plenty of creative valentines from the Valentines Exchange:

 They're all displayed in the hallway across from our classroom - if you'd like to check them out in person.
 We had a great Valentines Day party.  We used the idea from Owl You Need is Love for the adorable owl valentine bags!

How cute is that "Bon appetit" from my colleague, Ms. Aufiero!  She found this at CVS - how lucky is that!

For the games portion of the party, we played ping pong games!  I got these ideas here.

 We had four stations to visit!  One involved building a tower out of candy hearts (no hearts were eaten during this activity!); tossing a ping pong in a cup; and two bouncing ping pong ball off of paddles or utensils.  Even Mr. Kessaris joined in the fun!

At the end of the day, we  had a Character Assembly for respect:

Happy Valentines Day!

  1. I just found your blog through the linky party. I admire you for taking care of your father. It is a blessing to be able to give back to our parents when they have done so much for us, but it is also very tiring. Your valentine bags are so cute!
