Happy Hearts Day!! A photo essay

For Valentine’s Day this year, I’m posting a photo essay of hearts.  All pictures were taken by me on Feb. 13-14, 2015 with my Samsung phone camera.

It all started at school yesterday with a second grade girl with a unique hairdo.  (How does her mom do this? I thought.)  I asked if I could take a picture of her hair and she said yes.  That was what made me decide to take pictures of hearts.

????????????????????????????Although I expected to attend my class’s Valentine’s Day party and take lots of pictures there, which I then would send to the classroom teachers, instead I had to go to a meeting I was told about at the last minute.  At the meeting, there were cookies!

The students were on their way out and I had to do bus duty.  Some of the students I work with in reading told me as they were leaving that they had put their Valentines for me on the table in back of the classroom.  I gathered them up when I came back in from a cold, blustery afternoon and brought them home.  Most were boxes of candy:

Most important, however, is that Valentine’s Day is also my husband’s birthday!
