Happy Good Friday everyone! Today, I am extracting the kids out of school early to take them to a presentation of a living stations of the cross over at my mother-in-law’s church. It is put on by the parish youth group and they do a wonderful job. This is our second Good Friday doing this, and so begins a new tradition for us. We are Catholic by the way.
So now I am curious, what religion are you and do you have a Good Friday tradition?
Another little tradition for us is the Easter Egg Hunt put on by our town’s Parks & Rec. Dept. We took the boys last year and just went again last Saturday. James was invited to play some music with his little quartet called the “Homies” last year. These are his good friends from the school band. The Parks and Rec. asked them back to play again this year – which I thought was great! I just stop and think about what I was doing as a 12 year old and nothing that impressive comes to mind. I give Grant all the credit for organizing this one. He was the program coordinator. He sent the emails, printed the music, and brought the chairs and music stands and took all of the photos.
James and his friends aka “the Homies” played some tunes that they learned in band, but the featured songs were the “Sesame Street” theme song and “Here Comes Peter Cotton Tail!”
Areas were sectioned off by grades and each group hunted one at a time. Here is what one of the sections looked like. The eggs weren’t really hidden as you can plainly see!
Here are the children with baskets in hand, waiting patiently for their cue.
Can you find someone special in this picture? Here’s a hint, he is white and fluffy and arrived via firetruck. 🙂
And then it was complete and utter eggtastic chaos! And you know you are in New England when some kids are in shorts and some kids are in winter jackets!
The egg hunt is for all kids up to and including fifth grade, so as fourth graders, Ryan and his buddy got to participate.
