Before J left the boys and I sat down to write him a few surprise love notes that we could hide in his bags. The boys loved this! They had so much fun coloring and coming up with something to say. Q-tip wrote a song for him and then wrote another that he sung to J when he returned home from work that afternoon. I wrote random sayings, some serious some more funny, on 12 small cards that J came across a few times rummaging through things. He caught on quick what we had done and avoided seeing them whenever possible. I'm not sure how many were a surprise by the time he made it to his destination but I hope a few. I have a feeling they put a smile on his face whenever he found one. Mission accomplished!
