I love reading blogs written by other moms. I get lots of great ideas about parenting, crafts, organization etc. I read and plan and really believe that I can pull that shit off sometimes. Then reality hits and we eventually get things done but sometimes I feel disappointed in the way we were rushed or didn’t follow through on all of our plans. It’s hard not to get upset when you read a blog about how some families colored their Easter eggs skillfully and prayed over each egg and then planned ahead of time in order to bring them to church to get blessed by the priest. It made me feel like a failure. And to top it off they have a beautiful photo display of all their special moments. But I am learning to keep the perspective.
So, let’s see… Easter falls on Sunday, right? Starting to color Easter Eggs on Saturday night at 7 pm works, right? It does here.
Of course we didn’t get a single picture of Easter morning with just our family but here’s one at Grandma and Grandpa’s.. Gabi looked so cute in her green dress. She was so excited to wear it. And all the kids were bathed and had collar shirts on. Impressed? you should be.
We tried to get a picture of all 5 kids. Here are the results. Max had already destroyed his collar shirt. He did have one on. I swear. God love my son Ethan for trying so hard with Max.
It was a wonderful Easter! We did make it to church but we had to stand in the back. We weren’t even late but both the church and the parish center were packed. Nice to see lots of people celebrating Our Lord’s resurrection!
Happy late Easter and Happy Spring!
