Like many families, we try to make a big deal out of Good Friday and Easter weekend. Last year we visited the cross at church along with some other activities, some Jesus-focused, some not. This year I decided to follow what worked successfully this past Christmas: simplify. So today we baked hot cross buns and visited the cross. Sunday we will go to church and have family dinner with an egg hunt. That is all, and trust me, it's a lot less than our years past (even without a kid).
Recognize and Avoid Distractions
I am doing a great work and I cannot come down. Why should the work stop while I leave it and come down to you?
Parent and Work Intentionally
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
Don't worry... TLO is still getting a gigantic Easter basket! I like Peeps as much as anybody! And Reese's eggs. And giant chocolate bunnies. Oh, and those whopper-egg things.
(Wait- am I buying for him or me here??)
He also came away soaked, muddy, and incredibly happy.
