Daycare and Easter…

100_1525

This is my crew. My little ones, my life, my joy, my reason to do the best I can with what I have. I love these guys so much and am so lucky that their parents believe in me and trust me with their most prized possessions.  They are an extension of my body. And they love me always. It’s a great life, it really is.

Spring is coming, our trees are budding, blooming and the birds are coming back. I love these little fuzzy things on the poplar tree. They feel so soft, sorta like a pussy willow but longer. So cool.

We decorated eggs today. They had a blast and then when they were done we made these butterflies out of the dye and paper towels. I hate throwing away all the dye so just went a bit further.

When the littlest ones were resting or napping the girls and I made these. They are sock bunnies. A bit weird looking but the kids loved them and the girls had fun making them.

So that was our day. Daycare started at 6:45 AM and ended at 9:00 PM. I am pooped and more then ready to hit the hay, at least very soon.

The kids learned a few important facts today. Christ was crucified at 3:00 PM. The Easter bunny came to life in the 1600’s and he was first known as the Spring Bunny. He was a non-Christian observed holiday and then later on the non-Christians became Christians and that’s how the Spring Bunny met Easter. I’m not to sure about this fact but we did Google it and that what we came up with.

So my dear friends, take care and have a blessed Easter.
