Easter

2017 04 15_4736_edited-1

We went away for Easter this year. Other years we have had a Easter hunt at home full of candies, then another Easter hunt at church for more chocolate and then some time with the family who typically give them more then they even know what to do with. This year we went to the lake, and didn’t buy any candy, a last minute hunt was suggested by the grandparent generation but with not much on hand the kids searched the yard for just a handful of pieces of chalk, kinder eggs and bubbles pooled together from what the adults had around- and it was the first Easter Hunt to date that no one was in tears by the end over something. Lesson learned: Less overwhelm, less sugar, less expectations  and less stuff made for a far more memorable and meaningful day.
