Yesterday, while the boys and I were eating lunch, I started asking Noah questions about Easter. I was amazed at how much of the story he knew well. He even asked for more explanation about why if Jesus died on Friday, it was called "Good Friday". The discussion was over heard by onlookers (we were at a restaurant) and a man at the next table came over and congratulated me on how I was talking about it with my kids.
Now I don't know if I can take any credit at all...pretty much church does all the teaching I think. But I still swelled with pride that my 5 year old seems to "get it" as much as a 5 year old can.
So in the spirit of Easter, I will share some Easter past photos.
Noah's first Easter and a bowl of eggs at Uncle Matt and Aunt Jenny's house (2003)
Abby and Noah when they were VERY little at their first Easter egg hunt at church (2004)
Aaron's first Easter (2005)
Hannah, Noah, and Abby at our church Easter egg hunt two years ago (daughters of Deb) . I know we won;'t have anything like the green grass this year. We're under a winter storm warning as I write this. (2006)
Decorating easter cookies with Alex in Wisconsin. Notice the back of Noah's hair...it was a VERY bad cut that ended up getting shaved two days after this trip. (2007)
Boys opening easter gifts last year. Notice the shaved head on Noah. (2007)
And I know I've already shown it this year, but we needed something current, so here again is the Easter bunny photo from this year. (2008)
Have a wonderful Easter weekend.
