Each child receives a small basket awaiting them at their seat Easter morning. Truly, it is just a token gift - usually one or two pieces of candy, a nice new pen and some pencils, a hand knit toy for the younger children, and a bag of Smartfood popcorn for our oldest, Thomas, because he doesn't like candy.
Another tradition we have is hiding the plastic Easter eggs (yes plastic, but they are used year after year), filled with some coins. Each child has their own color and they are hidden in appropriate level of difficulty. This is the dear husband's job. Sometimes he makes the hiding spots so challenging it can take quite a long time for them all to be found.
We had our Quaker Meeting for worship at 10:00 am. It was nice to have three other sets of people come.
And then we enjoyed the beautiful day outside.
Sarah and Isaac practicing their casting in our pond.
Brought the chairs out.
The sap buckets were taken down and rinsed out, left to dry.
Giving the bikes a tune up.
This beautiful sunny morning, some of the children and I are off to see some Alpine doe kids...
we are all so excited.
