Brian has a 4 day weekend for Easter, so he's still home today. It's fantastic having him around after a week of him working til 7 or 8 pm. The littles are having a blast hanging out with him, mostly outside. It's finally that Spring weather that I can get behind- 60s during the day, and very cool at night. I like it.
I also liked our Easter yesterday. We skipped mass (shhh... don't tell my mom) because it is so insane to try and take littles to church on Easter. It's insane enough any other day of the year, trust me. But we said our prayers, and tried in a very stumbly sort of way to explain Easter to Fletcher. I don't think he got it. Especially since you tend to speak in broad strokes to a 3 year old, anyway.
We did the baskets, and a little egg hunt, too.
You know what I love about Fletcher? He went straight to his basket, pulled out the 2 books, ignored the new toys, and started reading.
You know what I love about Rowan? She went straight for the chocolate.
