Yes, EASTER. It will be here in one month. I just returned from my Sunday School room where I took down Valentine’s decorations and put up Easter things. I’m starting to look at craft projects for the next five Sundays, too. Yesterday my first graders planted seeds and took them home in terracotta pots. They also got to look and feel barley (uncooked) and eat bread made with spelt.
Some of my students really liked it and asked for seconds and thirds. A couple said they didn’t like it, but they did try it. I always tell kids they don’t have to eat anything they don’t like so my students are pretty willing to try anything knowing they can toss it out without admonition of waste. By the way, we had 15 in class. Biggest group yet. Wonder what Easter Sunday will be like?
Getting back to those Easter plans. I wrote and asked our daughter if they had any plans for the week, thinking we might go get the tiny grandkids and have them here for a few days. I also picked up a couple of Easter baskets at Target without any idea how I would use them. I probably would have bought more but they only had two of these:
One of the ladies who helps in Sunday School suggested that we make Easter baskets for two of our teenage helpers who do the most fantastic job. We’ve really missed them the last few weeks as they were out sick. I immediately thought of these baskets and suggested she get the grass and any other goody and I’ll get See’s Candy Easter bunnies to go in them.
So, Easter is coming. You got any plans?
