This morning was the local Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by the Federation of Churches. A great time for all of the kids in town--especially as the rain held off.
The picture to the right shows just a small section of the event, with a some of the Kindergartners. There are four areas set up by age group.
It's fun to watch. Most of the kids start out going for certain colors. Then they get serious and, as a dense pack, move across the the field in unison, almost like locusts, snatching up every egg remaining in sight.
Inside the eggs, a note reminding the children that Jesus loves them, a piece of candy, and a small percentage have a tag for a prize to claim. My daughter (the Kindergartner) got a kazoo, a notebook and a small puzzle. My older daughter (Jr. High) helped set up and distribute the prizes. Smiles and laughter everywhere.
