Love Is In The Air

I just have to share some cute and loving things I heard this week in kindergarten!

Conner said, "Mrs. S., I love you so much, tonight I'm going to write you a love note!"

While we made paper snowmen for our bulletin board, one child said, "I'm going to put my snowman's hands up so he can praise Jesus!"

A little boy said while praying, "thank you for our loving school and for giving us faith in You. Help us to do our best work today."

A 4th grade girl came to my classroom and said she had a present for me. A little box with cherry earrings inside, "because you love cherries, Mrs. S." She's right, I do!

Working in a Christian school is a sweet blessing that I can hardly express in words. No, it's not money. Or, a retirement plan. And, sometimes fear for the future does set in. But, it's being surrounded by something I do HOPE in.

This month, as you think of True Love, would you be willing to put a little goodie bag together for a teacher you know? Teachers give so much love away! I believe they would appreciate it!

Maybe even a donation to a local Christian school?

As a kinder teacher, a goodie bag with valentine supplies and maybe a Starbucks card, would be greatly appreciated. I know! It happened to me!
May your week be blessed!



  1. You have so many pretty red and white things. And I love the sweet things the kids say. I have teachers in my family. Teachers are special! Sweet hugs, Diane

  2. Oh, how sweet your little kids are and how sweet are they words :) What a cute Valentine tree you have! I THANK YOU for being a teacher!

  5. Patti,
    Next time you need a small vacation, can you please come help me decorate my house? Free room and eats! You have such a knack...I have so many cute kitschy items and no talent! I mean it....anytime after this summer.....:) Would love to meet you in person! Hugs, Sandy

    1. I would LOVE to visit with you! But, I don't believe for a second you have no talent. You are an inspiration to me!

  6. Oh gosh Patti, the kids are so darn cute! Love hearing what they say! Also love your sweet Valentines décor. Sweet vintage goodness! I found a couple of vintage cuties this year and I am thrilled. I smiled when I saw that little cupid on the checkered heart. I gave that same pin to our youngest daughter years ago for Valentines. I think it's still around here somewhere. :) I always made sure that my kids gifted their teachers with some little thing for every holiday. I appreciated all the work and time they spent doing their job and loving my children!

  7. What sweet children. It is so sweet to hear some of the things they say. When our was son little we sent him to a Christian private school. It was so special and there are so many sweet memories.
    Love seeing all you sweet Valentine decorations.
    Hope you have a great week.

  8. Everything is just so sweet in this post. All the beautiful stories and your darling home and lovely collections. Wishing you a happy filled February full of lots of love and more sweet stories from your kiddos.


Thank you so much for visiting! May your day be blessed!
Hugs, Patti
