Be Celebrating Easter

Gratitude.

Family.

Triumph over death.

Jesus is risen.

Fact or fiction?

This is for everyone to decide.

Alone.

With themselves.

And God.

Today, we celebrated Easter. We celebrated the North American way with chocolate bunnies and hunting for eggs. We also celebrated Jesus’ last days on earth through pictures Sexy Neck drew and books we read together. We walked with our cousins in nature. We finished the day with a campfire outside.

What memories did you choose to create today? In my ocean of grief, I was intentional about creating so great new ones.

Be Celebrating Father’s Day

“The carpenter’s hammer goes rap, rap, rap and the saw goes see saw see.”

Do you know this Kindermusik song?

This song epitomized our Father’s Day.  It was absolutely wonderful for the boys and Sexy Neck to work together on a few projects.  Our oldest, JC, wanted to make a bike rack for the new house.  The boys got dada a fire pit for the backyard so that we could roast marshmallows.

We also cooked muffin tin eggs for dada, I think this is something my boys could attempt on their own next year for father’s day – bread, ham, uncooked scrambled egg and shredded cheese in a muffin tin.  Pop it into a 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes and viola, lunch for dada.

We also went down to “Purple Park” for a play hang on the new playground and some time at the beach.

As I watched all the children and their father’s coming to the beach, I wondered:

Is Father’s Day really another Mother’s Day?
