Easter Egg Hunt

The primary Easter egg hunt was was this morning. I'm not sure what to say about it other than that it happened, the kids found plastic eggs full of candy, donuts and juice/milk were served.

It was an egg hunt. The kids were happy about the candy. The end.

I wish I had more to say about this activity but that's literally all that happened. It was still fun for the kids to get to run around for a minute, hunting eggs and seeing their friends.

The kids were so excited to choose their baskets this morning. Miriam chose a beautiful basket with a long handle and a floral ribbon around it, but then Rachel stepped in and said with a hint of superiority, "I'm going to use this blue basket because it will be easier to handle during the hunt, which means I'll be able to find more eggs. Your basket will be too difficult to control." Miriam promptly switched out her basket for a red one in the same style as Rachel's.

Benjamin was, perhaps, the most excited of all the kids. I asked him if he even knew what happened at an egg hunt.

"You just find eggs, Mom," he said.

I don't think he has any memory of Easter egg hunts past, but I suppose the phrase "egg hunt" is relatively self-explanatory.

I can't believe March is already over and Easter is right around the corner, but we are rather happy to be on spring break!


  1. You mean you GET to have Spring Break after all? Your snow days didn't erase it? That's good!

    1. Well, we're supposed to have three weeks off for intercession. We're only getting two. So we did technically miss a full week of spring break in order to make up several days of snow days.
