Another week, another chance to try and embrace Monday.
If you've been around a while you know that I have a love hate relationship with Mondays.
Pretty much meaning I love to hate them. Who's with me?!
A few weeks ago I shared our Spring Bucket List. Since then we have been hard at work checking things off and I thought it would be fun to share our progress.
Dye Easter Eggs
This year we decided to go with the Kool-Aid approach. This method may have smelled better than using vinegar but the eggs were not very pretty in my opinion. Maybe that is why I forgot to take a picture of the finished product. The girls did have a lot of fun and they weren't holding their noses the whole time, so I will call it a win.
We have definitely been growing something. Knowing I would be starting my garden from seed in February/March I waited to do the seeds and plants section of Marissa's science book until recently. She has been a big help taking care of my little seedlings and she even grew her own green bean plant during an experiment.
Easter Egg Hunt
A couple weeks ago we met up with some of our favorite friends for some Easter Egg hunting fun. It always amazes me that HUNDREDS of eggs are collected in two minutes. We came home with way more candy than we needed and had a great afternoon playing and having fun.
Fly A Kite
One year I will actually buy a kite that doesn't cost $1, but this was not the year. Marissa was so excited to assemble her own kite for the first time. Then we were able to head to the back yard and fly them around for a while. I guess living in an area with very few trees does have at least one benefit. Not everyone can fly kites in their own back yard.
Bake A Spring Treat
On Easter we baked up some resurrection rolls. It was fun talking with the girls about the symbolism of the marshmallow (Jesus) and the tomb (crescent roll). Don't worry though, I was pretty clear in explaining that Jesus was not really a marshmallow. We popped them in the oven and 3 days (or 12 minutes) later the tomb was empty. I love Marissa's face in the last picture. She was so surprised.
We are making some great progress working through our list. Now if the weather would just cooperate a little better we might be able to finish it off in the next few weeks.
