I can't believe April is here today. I do have to say, she comes with lots of color. We had a nice productive weekend. Yesterday the grand children came with their parents for Easter Sunday. It was a very nice day.
Some of them played games before dinner.
Some of them snacked on hot cross buns. Meg makes wonderful hot cross buns. Nik makes wonderful guacamole.
There were lots of races on the porch.
There was time for reflective pondering while sitting looking out at the rain.
Boxes to play in and people to talk to and lots of things to do.
That is Ben our oldest son sitting on his kick wheel. Megan, tell him to take it home if he wants it. :)
I loved this shot because of all of the action going on in it.
It was a nice day. We had lots of rain so the Easter egg hunt got postponed until late in the day. One of the nicest things was doing communion with all of our family. This is the first communion that Nik has been apart of here. I sat in the corner and I watched while my husband read the Bible, I still have the eggs with each of the things I made when my kids were small so that each child can open an egg and in it will be the bread and the 30 pieces of silver( 3 dimes) ending with the empty one. Each Father gave the bread and juice for each family. As I sat and watched while this was going on, I was stuck by how very blessed we are, to have such a large room full of people, all having a common bond. It is a huge shock to see how God took our lives and has given us so much overflowing into our laps. I am so very thankful.
It is a good way to start April, to see how blessed we are and how much joy that we have.
I hope your Monday is very nice. I am so glad to go back to school. I figure by Wednesday, I might not be sore and I can start working again. It is race against the clock now.
