the Easter fun

I really enjoyed taking part in Easter fun with the kids this year.  Callum picked up on finding eggs and enjoyed doing it several times throughout the week.  We even ventured to do the city egg hunt, which he loved. I would even go as far as to say that Riley figured out pretty quickly that eggs were meant to be put in a basket.  

The best part of all is always going to church with special new Easter church clothes.  My kids were looking snazzy.  Another special highlight was that Callum got to sing with the primary children during Sacrament meeting.  He was in the dead center front folding his arms for the first 45 seconds.  Suddenly, in the middle of the song, he decided to start jumping in place.  The one lone kid jumping in place during a very reverent rendition of Gethsemane.  I was dying laughing inside but also dying of fear about anything else he might do up there.  We made it through.  

Another funny thing was that he got to have the birthday song sung to him in primary since it's right around the corner.  When they called him to the front, he sped right to the microphone and immediately started saying a prayer.  It was funny and precious that he knew that's what the microphone is for.  He was so confused when he wasn't supposed to be at the microphone and only standing at the front while they sang to me.  He is just so eager about life.
