This year Nate & I decided to start a new family tradition.
We want to be careful not to give our children the false impression that Easter is all about hunting plastic eggs, digging into Easter baskets, and coloring boiled eggs. We want them to purposefully celebrate what Easter is really about--our Lord's sacrificial work of atonement and His glorious resurrection!
But the other stuff is fun, and we want the girls to enjoy those things. So instead of using them to celebrate Easter, we've decided to make the bunny-and-egg stuff about spring!
What better day to do it than last Saturday, the official start of spring?
They love a good egg hunt!
Ellia was newly amazed at every egg she found!
The big girls with their eggs. Brienna was busy (napping).
Then it was back inside to search for Spring baskets! New books for all, along with a couple special sweet treats, stickers, and new tights!
I would've liked to made cut-out cookies with our spring-themed cookie cutters, but that didn't seem like a great idea, given our commitment to good health...
