We gathered with a group of homeschooling families to celebrate Valentines Day .. more than 50 homeschooled children exchanged Valentines Day cards! What a treat!
On this day, the celebration food is glutinous rice sweet dumpling, also known as yuán xiāo [元宵]. We were delighted to enjoy this traditional treat this week with our Mandarin teacher – accompanied by a warm glass of milk tea prior to our lesson.
Privately, we honored our beloved home state with a little poetry … Oregon became the 33rd state on February 14, 1859.

Seaguls gather like an audience.
They’ve seen the show a thousand times
and they show it.
Meek mountains lumber
in the background
hoping for a moment
to hide behind a mist
Seaweed teases a billion fleas.
