It has been a good and full day – from the very cold (-13C) sunrise service at 7am to this beautiful afternoon (+2 C). There were 16 or so around my tables at noon aged from 84 yrs to a week and a half. We had turkey and ham and all the trimmings and then there was the great Easter egg hunt. Two boys running around so excited for each egg they found! And now Zaka has eaten just about all his chocolate eggs.
We were standing around the island watching Zaka deviscerate the chocolate bunny. There was a large hole from side to side – as if he had simply blown a hole in it. Right through the belly. I guess tonight he goes off with his father for a week or two. The guy showed up and wanted to take him away today but G stood her ground and he has been here with us and his cousins to help us all enjoy the day. We were discussing Zaka’s consumption of chocolate and the upcoming trip and what too much chocolate can do to the gut of a small boy. I guess we were not trying to keep him away from the chocolate that hard. I hope we can be forgiven for such things. I hate to see his mom so blue anticipating his departure. I am praying for a safe trip for him as he drives with his father to Edmonton. And a quick return. We love him so much.
Kieran got a new puzzle for Easter and that is what has been occupying him all afternoon. He can be entertained for hours with a puzzle.
It was a good and very blessed day.
