Happy Belated Spring!

We've been celebrating springy things, bugs, eggs, Easter, and so much more here in the Perry household!  All of this has caused a great deal of excitement and wonder.  I love how little ones have a never ending quest to learn and explore.  My little guys never cease to amaze me.  I cannot tell you how many times I've heard "Oh my goodness, you have THREE boys?!?!?" while I'm shopping at the grocery store or running errands.  Truthfully my little ones do keep me on my toes and on the go.  They are ALWAYS hungry!!!  However, I love all of the hugs, kisses, compliments, and smiles that I get every day.  I am SO thankful for them.  Here we are at the Discovery Gardens during spring break.  I know the picture looks kinda crazy because of the sun, but a sweet little lady offered to take our picture so I just couldn't resist!  I love my handsome fellas!

This week I spent some time with some cute little kindergarteners and first graders.  We worked on creative writing, and here are a few things that we did.  We used the book "Roly-Poly Egg" with the first page.  After I read the book, the kids decorated their egg as fancy as possible.  Then we worked on describing how the egg looked and what their egg could do.  Easy-peasy!

For the second page, we talked about peeps for a little bit.  Some kids liked them, some didn't, and some had never seen them.  I promised to bring in some for those who had never seen them!
Even though they were sad that they weren't going to eat any peeps, they were pretty excited to do a little bit of artwork and creative writing.  I might try this with Christian and Solomon.  They haven't been exposed to peeps yet!  By the way, the adorable "peep" graphic is a freebie from Krista Wallden.  You can get a set of them in color or black and white here!

I am so excited about Easter this year.  Not because of a fancy new dress or a huge egg hunt, but because I love our church so much.  The children's ministry is phenomenal.  It is filled with ordinary people who truly care about the life and well being of children.  Christian is learning so many wonderful memory verses and bible stories.  I guess I'm not just excited that he's learning them and memorizing them, but I am beginning to see him apply some of the things that he has learned.  Last week on Palm Sunday he made this little craft.

I hope you have a wonderful Resurrection Sunday!
