Easter Party at School

Yesterday morning it was Easter party time at Anna Kate's school. The parents arrived at 9:15 while the kids went back inside. Each class had a basket of eggs that we parents had to hide. There were a TON of eggs. Once the eggs were all in their hiding places (some more obvious than others) it was time for the kids to come back out. They were bursting with excitement to find the eggs. It was funny watching them all bust out of line and race to the eggs.

After the hunt, it was time for the yummy party food. This time the parents weren't given any assignments; we just chipped in $2 each and everything was ordered in. It was nice not having to worry with making something for a change.

I always enjoy going to the school parties, because it gives me the opportunity to watch Anna Kate in her element. Although, she tends to 'act out' a tad just because I'm there. (I wish I had studied child psychology in college, so that I could understand why she does this....among other things.) They were cute singing their little songs, dancing to their music and playing 'Ring Around the Rosey'.

Soon it became obvious that Anna Kate just wasn't going to let me leave without her, so she ended up going back to the office with me for an hour or so. She was good, but Miss Marcia was a tremendous help in keeping her occupied while I got some work done. All in all, it was a really good day.

Here is a quick slide show of the day. If any parents out there would like the pics, just shoot me an email and I'll be happy to send them to you - .

Oh, and I can't end without posting a few pics from this week while playing outside.
