Easter: Skipping the Thousand Words


Ah, Easter. The picture says it all. What you are looking at there is a shot of the sidewalk outside of my parent's front door, the starting place for our candy hunt on Sunday afternoon. Those little dark spots are where Bitty's tears were landing, in two perfect little puddles, as she was liberally shedding them, overcome as she was by....I don't even remember what. It was one of those days where by about 10 a.m. she was bursting into tears about every 15 minutes. I think I'm doing holidays incorrectly. They just seem to make my kids cry.

I did actually bring our nice camera to our family Easter dinner, but didn't end up even taking it out of the bag. I was too busy juggling Bundle, chatting with both Troy's and my parents, getting food ready, keeping the other kids happy, etc. Luckily Troy had his iphone on hand when Bitty started fountaining tears, a sure sign that Easter was wrapping up. Too much sugar, too much excitement, too many people... too much! I can't believe our treat basket on top of the fridge. It easily has as much candy in it as it does after Halloween. Ah yes, another super spiritual Easter Sunday for the Preslar family. Good thing we've got next year to try again.

And now, Spring break is in full force. So far, so good, despite the snowstorm we got last night. I'll let you know how it ends up.

Now that is a great photo. I'm jealous that you still have all of spring break ahead of you. We were back to homework and treachery today.

We get an extended three and a half week "Spring Break." There are some things I really like about year round school. It is very comforting for me to know that you have a sweet, yet challenging daughter too. I lucked out because I got to share our huge bowl full of candy with a SIL who took some away for her kids' Easter Egg hunt. There's still far too much left, though. I don't know that we mentioned religion other than Conference even once. Sigh. Hopefully the weather will warm up very very soon. At least I am still getting to knit and wear sweaters.
