Dirty Dozen Workout & Easter Weekend Recap

I hope you had a nice Easter weekend. Our family of six spent yesterday watching church service online, spending time in our backyard, and we rented Trolls 2.

Easter Weekend 2020

Earlier in the week we got out our Resurrection Egg set. These had been gifted to us by an older couple at our church years ago. I didn’t realize how much I treasured them until I pulled them out of storage from the garage this year. I got a little teary eyed as I brought them into the house.

I knew Easter wasn’t going to be the same this year. No dinner with my parents, grandparents, brother and sister-in-law, brother-in-law, and cousins. Church would be online.

So much is different from this time last year. So much is different from just a month ago.

In a weird way these eggs helped me to remember that even in all the crazy of the world God is still in charge and he is still the same. I needed that reminder.

Lately I have been baking up a storm and this weekend was no exception.

We also enjoyed watching the wildflowers start to blossom in our backyard. Maisie and I started them from seeds in January and they are just now starting to bloom.

Here are a few shots of one wildflower in particular that we have been closely watching as it blossoms.

Our Maisie girl loves her flowers. Her fairy garden is overflowing with color.

To recap the weekend, it was honestly perfect for this new normal we are experiencing. When Josh wasn’t at the fire station we had so much quality family time. Slowing down and not feeling the need to be out doing things has been such a gift and has allowed me to focus more time on just being present with our kids.

This week we are heading to our son’s school for a drive by pick up of the items in his desk as well as his consumable books. He will get to see his teacher in person. While we have been able to FaceTime, and it is great, nothing beats the real thing. Last week when we were doing math at the kitchen table he said to me “Mom I really miss school”.

I really have no words.

I try to put my thoughts together and they are just a jumble mess. I am so thankful to have kids who love their schools so much and for their amazing teachers.

But really I have no more words.
