I've attached some pics of the kids hunting for Easter eggs at our house. It took much longer for 4 of us to hide them this year than it took Michael and Charity to find them. They had a good ol' time and we came away with a fresh stash of chocolate. Eric and I are conscientious parents and would never allow them to eat that much candy so we have sacrificed over the last week and eaten some of it ourselves. Feel free to nominate us as parents of the year. Eric claims we use a Communist form of parenting but I just think we are just doing our duty and teaching them how important healthy eating is! "Do as I say, not as I do!" Besides, I LOVE CHOCOLATE!
In other news, I just finished reading a book by Paul Maier called A Skeleton in God's Closet. The basic premise is that the hero is on an archaeological dig and discovers what appear to be the bones of Jesus. The book brings up a lot of scenarios about how this would affect not only believers but also the rest of the world. Reading as we came away from the Easter season gave the book a lot of significance as I thought about not only what the Resurrection means but also the significance and implications of it. I highly recommend it!
