Searching for ways to look on the bright side? The Heart Challenge was something my son and I made up one sunny Saturday a handful of years back. We were spending some time outside when we looked up and saw a cloud in the shape of a heart. "A heart!" he called. We marveled at its perfection and as it turned out, it wasn't hard to find hearts all over our neighborhood. On a simple walk found: heart puddles, heart petals, heart pavers, hearts everywhere! We made it a daily challenge. I tell my students about it and they often bring me special heart shaped leaves and rocks from the playground. It's a nice reminder that love is everywhere. All you have to do is open your eyes and look around.

Heart pavers. Don't forget to look down!

Ms. Kim, a 1st grade teacher at our school, sent this one to me. One of her son's picked it up in Tahoe and Ms. Kim kindly sent it my way! What a beauty!
A friend of mine in Washington DC sent this one to me. She said, "Ripped rag is getting in on the heart game." She's perfect.
