Happy Easter!

Easter fun 

This is what Jacob brought home from school after their Easter party on Wednesday. It's a jump rope inside - such a cute idea! The bottom is a beer coaster from the local brewery, and the top a toilet paper tube.

They have been staying busy with Easter songs and games, decorating eggs and eating them too. We decorated eggs here one day last week when one of Jacob's friends was over. We will probably do it again today or tomorrow, depending on what else we have planned. Jacob is off of school for Good Friday and Easter Monday, so we can fill up that time with something fun. Kenny of course has to work, but we are hopeful he will have Saturday off, so he can get a break from work.

Jacob is looking forward to the Easter bunny, and he has a very matter-of-fact attitude about the Easter story. He heard it recently at church and told me "Did you know Mommy why we have Easter? Because Jesus died but then he came back to life. The teacher didn't say anything about the bunny though"

Fishing season is here 

Last week Jacob and Kenny went fishing and caught their limit in trout. Jacob had a great time and helped reel in a couple of the fish. He didn't want to leave the lake that day, he's a real fisherman/outdoorsman at heart. (Just like his Dad!)

He's not afraid of touching the fish either, or the bait. In fact, some of the bait made it home as short-lived pets.

When he wasn't fishing he was climbing around on the hill or picking up sticks. Last year he would get bored really quickly but finally seems to have found an interest in it that lasts for quite a while. Afterwards they head to the lake house to have a burger and clean the fish. It is usually a pretty fun day.
