Valentine's Day Party
When addressing the valentines, simply label them to "friend". The kiddos will still be delivering them, but they will be able to deliver them more quickly instead of matching each name to each box.
Thank you for pitching in and visiting www.signupgenius.com to see what supplies we will be needing. We would like them to arrive before the 10th, so we can make any last minute trips to the grocery store.
Parents are welcome to attend too! It is February 12th from 12:20-1:30. Please let me know if you have any questions.
We had 3 more kids read their way to Six Flags!
