Love Quotes and Poems

I’m not big on supporting the Hallmark card industry and bearing gifts in February, though I find it irresistible not to celebrate some thing that pertains to hearts in small ways. Being that I’m not too creative right I offer no originals, but will share a few from my ever- growing list of favorites. The girls like to choose their own copy work for penmanship practice and have used a few of these so far this month. They have an ever growing aversion to workbooks and like to make their own. I totally agree.
