Valentines Day at Amphi Middle School

While some of them preferred a more active recess,
others stepped right up and got into the spirit of the day.

What started like this

turned into this
with just a little bit of encouragement from Grandma Suzi.
Even the football kids took time to send some love.
Some took their own sweet time, adding and taping and stamping
until it was just right.
Masks are optional outside; when the work became intense enough for the protection to slip, I took myself to the other end of the table. I didn't want to get sick, but I didn't want to interrupt the creative process.
Some stopped by to write a quick note on a folded piece of paper.
Some hung out with friends for all of recess.
There was lots of giggling.... unfortunately covered by masks.
Even the very sophisticated 8th graders participated.
This ended up on my knee, as the donor scooted away.
I hope your day was as wonderful as mine.
Listening to the scholars who knew me introduce me to those who didn't made my heart sing.
We walked with you around the playground.
We helped you heal.

There it is. 
The reason I do this.
I improved and they made memories of doing good.
