We are in limbo today. Between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Sad, but excited. A time of year that has been filled with emotion since I was a child. The first movie that made me cry was one that showed Jesus carrying his cross. I was nine.
Today we prepare a trip back to my parents'. We'll be able to spend the day tomorrow with family that I missed out seeing at Christmas when I was so sick. I'm excited to see everyone! The kids are so excited they can't stand it. We've got to wait until after B's swimming lessons and it just seems like it's taking so long to them.
We've spent March mainly inside. Had a spring clothing shopping spree. Dyed some Easter eggs and hid them in the back yard last weekend. B has started her very first year of swim lessons.
Our Little Man is suddenly speaking in sentences. Shouting out demands and finishing them with a loud "OKAY???" He'll be two in just a few weeks.
I've planned out our fourth and final quarter of school. Now I'm thinking of summer, with our first family trip to the beach planned. With many trips to the zoo to come. I feel the darkness of winter beginning to shed. With the exclamation tomorrow morning. It comes every year, such a celebration. Such a renewal. He Is Risen!
Happy Easter to All!
