It’s all about the EGGS

April 4, 2015

So it seems that with each year we seem to add just a bit more Easter egg jazz to our pre-Easter festivities. It’s a lot like the Christmas parties before Christmas, right?!

It all started with the Easter party in the preschool classroom. PRECIOUS! Clare loved the games and the little caterpillar craft also. I always love the opportunity to be in the classroom (I know I’m a bit spoiled with more than the average number of opportunities.) Her teacher is really fantastic and I really like the room mom! She’s a former teacher also and we’ve had some fun collaborating on a handful of projects over the year. These classroom parties are a first for us if you don’t count the ones I hosted as a classroom teacher many moons ago.

Cold or not…this girl loves to play!

Thursday was a very dreary and coldish afternoon egg hunt with our homeschool friends. Oh my was it the best one yet though. The eggs were numbered 1-12, a dozen for each person participating. You hunted 12 eggs and only one of each number. Ellie definitely didn’t get it, but sweet Clare was all excited to find the numbers she needed. Golly, I needed a better memory keeper on our team though as I was constantly recounting her eggs to determine which numbers she was still missing. FUN though! We have come to really love this group of families. We missed a few of our dear friends though who couldn’t make it and we were rushed to leave so I could get home to teach. Community is such a gift though! I’m so thankful to have rooted ourselves more in this life of schooling at home.

One of Katie’s friends was able to make it and graciously agreed to help Elizabeth.

Michael had a few friends there who are part of his weekly homeschool P.E. class. We didn’t realize they were part of the homeschool group until this event…their first!

Clare was with me to help pick out the eggs for these upcoming hunts. She was so excited to have found PRINCESS eggs and then to have found them during the hunt.

Happy hunting!

Friday this little girl hosted the sweetest little Easter party!

She lives just a few doors down from us and mom works the weekends. Friday was the perfect opportunity to celebrate a new-to-her holiday. It was great to meet a few more neighbors and of course let the little girls play! They had a great time!!

The customary egg dying wrapped up our festivities until the real celebrations Sunday morning.
