they kicked off the fun with lunch donated from the local chick-fil-a (one of her classmates' parents owns it) and then moved on to a fun craft that involved 250 burnt matchsticks, a buttload of glue and a precut wooden base.
with a relatively small campus to work with, hiding those eggs was no easy task. you would've had to have been legally blind to have missed those things.
the kids were bursting with excitement as they came outside with baskets in hand, ready to stampede in and find their loot. they were given a limit of 14 eggs each, and they burst onto the campus with determined faces. i noticed that the bean was carrying two baskets, and when i asked her who the second one belonged to, she told me that she was gathering eggs for her friend who'd been called into her piano lesson. somehow it didn't surprise me one bit that she'd volunteered to help her out.
of course, i ended up having to sit around for half an hour as the bean took her own piano lesson. she's got the end-of-the-year recital coming up, so she needs as much instruction as she can get.
can you believe it's almost the end of the year already? it's crazy. seems like the school year just started! time just goes by too damn fast.
