Happy Valentine's Day! That is my shout out folks and now. . . .
Last week when I pulled in to the school parking Niko and Luke both started vehemently protesting the need to go. "Mom, WHY do I have to go to school? When will I never have to go again?" "Why does the government make me go to school?" (Sorry, wasn't sure who else to blame).
Remembrances of "sick days" when I was allowed to ditch school for a lunch date with Dr. Mom flashed through my mind and I quickly reversed out of the parking lot. Tears turned to whoops of excitement when I announced that we were heading to the National Postal Museum. Best. Sick. Day. Ever!
Coolest exhibit. The boys could have played in the big rig cab for hours.
Boys wondered how to get into that plane. Mom was glad said plane was dangling suspended from the very high ceiling.
Finally taller than the wheel.
Not quite as tall as the wheel yet.
We wandered into the Union Station Barnes and Noble after the museum.
Is this my daughter or what?
Hazel has seriously hit the "almost two's" recently as evidenced by this picture and the one below.
This was my favorite part of today. In case you can't read 5 year old scrawl it says, "Ye shall not believe in one man, only the Savior." He read this to us at family home evening and then made us stand up and repeat after him. I guess he is continuing his mother's legacy of making up scripture.
