Comments for Easter

Dying eggsEaster: 04/08/07

Sean had fun this morning hunting for eggs although it did take some coaxing to get him started. He had taken the "ten only" rule from school to heart and I had hidden twenty-three. Once I'd convinced him that it was okay to find all twenty-three, he quickly dashed around the living room finding eggs while Harriet watched.

Afterwards we gave the kids their gifts: a magnetic fishing pole toy and a miniature Ex-a-sketch for Sean and pop-beads and a jiggling caterpillar toy for Harriet.

We spent most of the day playing video games although we did pop out for lunch and for a stop at a book store. It was nice to take it easy today.

Before Harriet's dinner and bedtime we dyed a dozen eggs. Harriet supervised while the three of us did four eggs each. Sean went for the dump-the-egg-in-every-color technique, while Ian did the dip-and-hold-different-sides to make tie dye eggs and I used tape to cover up different pieces of the egg to make oddly shaped polka dots.
