One of my FAVORITE preschool children’s books for Easter time is “My Easter Basket: And the real story of Easter“. It links the colors of eggs in your basket to the Easter story as each color represents a part of the story. As one of the “party moms” in Isaac’s 2 year old preschool class tomorrow, I’m going to read this book to them–and then let them come get an egg of each color.
I wrote on each egg what that color stands for so parents can retell the story in their own words…
Green = Palms that lay for Jesus to walk on
Purple = The Last Supper (bread and wine)
Red = God’s LOVE for me! (the cross)
Brown = Cave that was Jesus’s grave (p.s.you won’t find brown eggs…this is for your brown chocolate bunny:)
White = The angel that declared, “HE IS RISEN!”
Yellow = The sun celebrating all that God has done!
I LOVE EASTER:)
Here’s the cookie cake for tomorrow in the shape of an egg.
In other news…a few St.Patrick’s day pictures. Nothing like a grilled cheese a round of baseball for a 2 and 3 year old:)
Don’t you like the “tux” he wore for St.Patrick’s day??? LOVE this picture of ITY–“Which do I wanna do more??? Baseball or finish my sandwich???”
I love to watch these two play…only 8 months apart…and the best of buds.
Frank decided to graduate from the tee–and he can actually make contact 80% of the time. But the tee is way more fun to play with brother when momma is too tired to pitch…
Aren’t you proud of me mom??
And finally–for those of you who are so precious to pray for my health stuff…I got more blood work and tests back last week–and it’s official that my immune system is down as I’m picking up anything and everything. Last week’s report included H plory bacteria in my stomach, 2 parasites–ONE of which the labs have NEVER seen before and now they must name. The other from South America–a country I’ve yet to visit but one that I eat a lot of veggies from. Good times. I’m on 3 antibiotics now for all of these wonderful things–and then we’ll pick back up on Lyme treatment after these are knocked out…hopefully in just a week or so because I’m so ready to be done with this round of antibiotics…not loving the side effects. I started everything for this course BEFORE Created for Care–so once again it is just proof that the Lord gives you strength and sustains!
Still praying about school stuff for the kids for next year. Starting to lean toward ANOTHER year of homeschool. I really felt like I need to pray about another option so this momma can focus on wellness…BUT I also know the Lord is able–and I’m trusting in His complete healing this summer. Sure–call me crazy…but it’s possible!
Blessings to you all! And happy celebrating Easter!! Such a joyous time to celebrate!
He is Risen!
