Happy First Day of Spring!

And She's Off!

I don’t know why I never thought of this before, but I had to wait for Shannon to write about it for me to go, “Duh! So *that’s* what I’ve wanted to do all this time!” You see, I think egg hunts are super fun and the girls all have Easter baskets, but I could never reconcile it in my mind with the reason we observe Easter. Solemn, reflective time on Good Friday, rejoicing at the truth of the resurrection on Sunday, then hunting down colored eggs? How do these things go together again? Nevertheless we’ve done them.

Until this year. Granted, we didn’t go as all out as Shannon did, but we did do the whole egg-dyeing thing last night and then passed out the baskets today and had the big hunt this afternoon. It was super fun and I didn’t feel one bit guilty about it. We explained the change to the girls, who all whole-heartedly embraced the idea as well as our reasons. They enjoyed our celebration of spring and will hopefully be able to have a more reflective Easter.

Eggs!
