More Than One Valentine

Jeffrey’s question changed the day o’ red for me.

“Mommy, why do you and Daddy have to go out just the two of you for Valentine’s Day?”

So I thought about it a LOT. Then decided. From now on Valentine’s Day would not just be about Jeff and I making a big deal about each other. We have 3 other little valentines who need to see us make a big deal about them too. And not just on this day, but every day.

A plan began to form in my mind and the more I thought about it, the more excited I became. It would be a fun night, and one that would edify as well.

It started with a clue…

And then, they reached their destination…
