Comments for Easter
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.
