Easter (Part III)

Happy Easter

Though the chocolate is great (even though I probably won't say that when I'm in my bathing suit this summer), the cute little Easter baskets are fun, and the Easter bunny pictures are cute, that is not what Easter is about. Easter is about Him. Easter is about what He did for us. In this world it is too easy to get caught up in what holidays are not. I admit, Jalen has a fine Easter basket, but he will also grow up knowing that Easter is about Jesus and how blessed he is.

Have a happy and blessed Easter. He Is Risen!

Easter (Part I)

We did Egg Spin Art on Thursday morning with Ki and Ry-Ry. It was a lot of fun and a mess free way to dye Easter eggs. Jalen and Ryan enjoyed it and the results were really pretty.

Easter Play

Last Friday, Jalen was in an Easter play and was an awesome fisherman. He rode in a little brown boat. He was too cute! He sang perfectly and did the hand motions. My favorite was "Deep and Wide." I remember that songs from our Reedy Creek Church days! :)

We got to watch Brooklyn the other day and Jalen is such a good big cousin. He read a couple books to her and was doing a great job. Brooklyn seemed to enjoy it and I have to say that I enjoyed listening to him read. Such a sweet boy.

Growing Up Too Fast...

Where does time go? They are all getting too big..

Jalen had his first soccer game/practice today. I tell you I was super proud as a Mom. I never realized how fun sports and cheering him on would be. For his first time playing anything, he did good. He understood the concept and definately always like to be playing and not waiting in line for his turn! He wore his super fast shoes and shin-guard socks, then brought his glow-in-the-dark green and blue ball. He was decked out from head to toe! Next week he will wear his super fast jersey. Yes, everything is super-fast.. have to keep the interest going!

Jalen is a little too grown these days.. He got out of the shower, hopped in the bed, and started listening to Nick's iPod. Where does time go? and where do kids learn to do these things?
