today marked the second…or is it the third?…year that we’ve celebrated spring by incorporating former easter activities into our first day of spring celebration. it has helped make easter sunday just that much more christ-focused, less hectic, and less sugar-full. not that today wasn’t incredibly christ-focused as omar and i had to keep reminding ourselves that our unusually fussy and demanding kiddos were making the festivities a really good example of the gospel – we do absolutely nothing to earn god’s gifts and grace and love. and let’s just say the hoodlums’ erratic behavior should have only earned them a 2pm bedtime (wink).
but omar and i had a hectic week where we saw each other very little so we didn’t mind handling the craziness together. he baked the boys their bug muffins. i found some springtime pasta and served that for dinner. the boys were quite intrigued with the egg coloring and our spring garland. and grandma got them their first pez dispensers.
