I Love You More Than...

Photobucket

I hope you all had a fabulous Mother's Day weekend. Mine was busy and wonderful! One of my gifts was a school-made booklet made by my daughter. The class read the book Moss Gown by William H. Hooks and then created their own "I Love You More Than" page. The pages were copied and brought together for a booklet for each mom. I love it!
At the end there is also a Top Ten List on Why I Love My Mom. My daughter's number ten? I love my mom because she is weird! She knows me so well. Do you see what her contribution to the Love book was at the top? I love you more than poetry loves its rhymes. Again, she knows me so well!


Check out these other fun, cute entries in the booklet:

Incase anyone is interested, i will have an old order Mennonite woman named Jean post her 2nd post on my blog this Tuesday. Please feel free to visit and leave a question for her if you like. Richard from Lebanon county's Amish settlement.

That's so sweet!!

My kiddo made a top 10 list for me too from school. She worked on it really hard and put it on nice colorful paper. When I read it out loud she was shocked that her #2 reason was a repeat of her #9. She almost had little tears in her eyes over that which I thought was extra sweet.

I'm impressed there's no apostrophe in "its poems". Someone is teaching those kids well! They're all so cute.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I forgot I was going to check out #badquerytips after seeing Laura mention it on her blog this morning. Oops! And now it's bedtime.

Kim Kasch said...

Those are the true treasures of life. I saved nearly every card my kids every gave me, but surely all the ones they made for me because a writer loves the written word more than the pencil loves the paper ;)

Stephen Tremp said...

"I love you more than poetry loves its rhymes" is the sweetest thing I have ever heard. I am tempted to plagiarize.
