Happy Valentine's Day

I'm teaching my son some basic calligraphy. I've struggled since he started writing to get him to take his time and do a good job. I thought learning some calligraphy might help. He enjoys art so I called it "artistic writing."

He used his new skill to make valentines for his classmates.

Pretty good for a 10 year old who does not enjoy writing! I had him write this neatly one time then scanned it and printed 24 copies. We made Jolly Rancher lollipops and attached the note to the lollipop bag. He was very excited and proud to take his handmade treats to school today.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Very lovely. It is good to encourage I children to do other things and work at it, it make them feel they have accomplished something and makes you proud.
