These are the things I love
Once a year
They all roll into one afternoon.
Five years ago
My friend Kay and I hosted the first
Good News Easter Egg Hunt
For members of our church
And extended families.
It quickly became a tradition.
Once again this year
Family…Kids…Gardens…Friends and Community
Came together on a sunny Saturday afternoon.
The crafts this year
Were musical instruments.
Which brings me to my friend Eddie Lou.
It’s always handy to have a music teacher
At your side.
And that’s where we’ve been.
Side by side for the last forty plus years.
And now grand motherhood.
So it was natural
That the three of us would plan this year’s event.
Kay a master at the grand motherhood thing
And entertaining children.
Eddie Lou using her well honed teaching skills
To help children create
More details were worked out by
Kara, Abbey and Tashana.
While Andrew and Katie provided
Bags of candy for all the kids.
Megan filled 700 Easter eggs,
And Monica supplied her famous lemon cookies
The Ladybug release has become the highlight of the afternoon.
With kids not just expecting
To have bugs crawling up their arms.
They actually look forward to it.
Needless to say
It takes a village
To create memories
To simply share
In the joys
Thank you Beth Young and Jennifer Cole for the use of your marvelous pictures.
