Easter was a wonderful day in our household this year. The kids and Michal and I went to the sunrise service at Union Grove Baptist Church. We were there at 6:45 AM for the service and then stayed to help fix breakfast, eat breakfast, and play. The boys played on the playground while we were making breakfast. And after breakfast Michael took time to teach them both about basketball at the basketball court at the church. They had a great time and so did I. I found little Connor got very tired after getting up so early. So I laid out his blanket on a pew and we just wrapped and rolled him up inside his blanket for a little rest. I sang him some songs while we sat there and he rested though he didn't sleep. After that he was ready to go back out and play more basketball. The service was wonderful. The 11 o'clock service they did a little drama-almost a mini rock opera! It was really cool. The boys eyes were riveted to the stage. We enjoyed the rest of the service too, and soon after we got home we spent some time playing with their ninjitsu figures and just generally hanging out. We had a mini egg hunt, at Ian's request. Jeremy had brought some Cadbury eggs over so I hid those for the children to find. All in all, it was a wonderful day of recognizing what Jesus did for us.
