Happy Easter!

Unfortunately, Frédéric had to work yesterday, so we didn't get to go to church. We did read the Easter story from the boys' children's Bible about five times yesterday, though, because Benjamin was convinced this was just "the egg holiday," and because the first few times I asked him what happened in the story, he came out with a very, very confused version about God giving money to the people (Judas's pieces of silver), or Jesus being mean (hm, pretty sure that was the other people). He's a little closer now in his interpretation... "Jesus came alive again... three times." Ok, we still have a little work to do.

After Frédéric came home, he hid the boys' Easter eggs outside for them. Benjamin had a hard time holding back to let Noah look for the eggs, but he was very quick to give Noah the eggs he found so they'd both have some. (Yes, he is giving in the picture below, not taking.)

Noah was much more interested in his eggs than in bothering to look at me for a nice picture.

Back inside, we counted to make sure the egg distribution was even. Benjamin sat in consternation, unable to remember what came after "ten."

I leave you with this Parental Mythology Picture! Love it!

Wonderful photos and Easter story!
We went to church but had to "hide" in the gym when the siren went off!
We are very thankful no lives were lost from the tornadoes at the airport and nearby communities.
It has been raining all day and will be most of this week - blah!
Thanks for sharing,
