Eating Easter Cookies

Just wouldn't be Easter without the cookies! 4.24.11

Easter Monday

We normally spend Easter Monday with my aunt and her kids. This year it was raining so we had to improvise for the Easter egg hunt. Instead of the kids finding candy in their eggs I put play money inside. So the kids got to spend their money at the concession stand and use their math skills to see what they could afford. There was "deluxe candy," spring tattoos, snacks, and penny candy. It made the egg hunt last almost 1.5 hours! It was a big hit. Ian ran the stand and the kids did the buying....everyone was busy. This might be what we do next year even if it isn't raining! 4.24.11

Celebrating the Passover 2011

During the Lenten Season the kids look forward to the Seder meal sometimes more than getting Easter candy. They love the tradition of the big meal at home. Getting to drink lots of sparkling wine probably has something to do with it. They also love the unleavened bread. Here is a picture of this years feast and one of Michael doing the blessing of the bread.( 2009, 2010) 4.21.11

Science experiment

The kindergarten class was discussing the difference between a solid and a liquid so they made oobeleck today. It is a solid and a liquid at the same time. But more importantly it is messy which makes for lots of fun for kids. 3.25.11

Hobo Day

It was Hobo day at the co-op and the kids were super excited about dressing up. I thought they made the cutest little hobos don't you? Right out of the depression era. 3.24.11
