Our Easter weekend started with a soccer game. Riley is really progressing. He is staying focused throughout the whole game and his skills are improving so much. This game he played one quarter of offense, one of defense, and one at goalie. Riley is not exceptionally great at catching, so I was super proud of his saves and no goals scored on him.
After dying the eggs, the younger two kids plus a few adults took a nap. Then as soon as Daddy got home from turkey hunting, we did a little hunting of our own. Egg hunting!
Caleb got one too. I hope he didn't make quite as much a mess!
After all the candy, it was time to make dinner. We had our traditional meal of hamburgers, hot dogs, and homemade ice cream. YUM!!!
Then at the designated moment, they all opened their envelopes and released about 250 butterflies. There were squeals of delight & a few screams of fear.
Despite counting heads a dozen times,because I was so afraid of losing one of our 19 PreK kids, I would say it was a really neat experience and something that would be lots of fun to do again next year.
The rest of our Easter involved lunch at Don Pablos and then just heading home to get some chores done. It was completely backwards of our usual Easter weekends, but I kind of like not being exhausted tonight after doing sooo much today. The exhaustion part was last night instead.
