As mentioned, we attended our church egg hunt this Saturday morning. Chris had the day off and was able to join in on the fun which was such a treat. I believe the story is best told in pictures. A few details to note, Lakin was wearing these adorable blue shoes that are about one size too big, she refused to wear them the entire morning so she is barefoot in every single picture. The dress she is wearing was handed down from friends here in Rochester and is actually a flower girl dress. I thought she looked like a mini bride. Ah, so cute. Lakin is adamantly opposed to combing her hair.
Go Fish Guys playing in the background and friends from school all around, she was able to keep her spirits up, choke down some p cakes and do a little impromptu dancing sans shoes in the gymnasium before we headed to our classroom for the hunt and lesson.
It was then time to sit in the rainbow shape and hear about the resurrection eggs. These eggs each contained a small trinket that told part of the Easter story. You can tell from the photos below how Lakin spent the time during the lesson. She was walking around the room and trying to get into the box the eggs came in. Luckily there were a few other one-year-olds in the room who were also having a hard time sitting still.
Have to admit I was a bit ashamed that she was not a better listener and that she refused to sit still while we learned about the eggs but I did have to laugh about her oblivion of all that going on around her while she explored the room. She did give the other parents in the room a good chuckle while she was under the sheet.
Then it was time for the hunt. Lakin was only mildly interested in finding Easter eggs.
There's always next year. I'm marking it down as a wonderful memory and an overall win for the Jaeger family.
