The case of the missing valentines

Unbeknownst to me, a near disaster occured this morning. Ashlyn walked in her classroom this morning in tears. She had lost her valentines. Were they stolen? (Imagine!) Were they crushed under a snowy tire? Where could they have vanished? Luckily, 1st grade teachers can solve mysteries and dry tears at the same time! Ashlyn's teacher Mrs. Boeke knew just what to do. They backtracked Ashlyn's morning and realized the valentines had been left on the school bus! Gasp! So, Mrs. Boeke called the school secretary, who called the bus driver, who drove back to school to deliver the ever important valentines! Whew! It was a team effort and Valentine's Day was saved! Thank you Mrs. Boeke, Mrs. Blick, and Driver Dan for helping a 6 year old on her first Colorado Valentine's Day!
