Egg Hunt!

Every year, a couple women at Woodberry hold an Easter Egg hunt for all the faculty/staff kiddos. For some reason that I can no longer remember, we didn't go last year, but we made it this year, and I'm so glad we did. What fun!! Out on the lawn of campus, plastic eggs are either on the lawn near the starting point (for the little kids) or hidden farther away (for the bigger kids). Jason headed out of lacrosse practice a bit early so he could see the fun, and I'm glad he got to see it in person. It was so cute to see all these little kids running around the lawn looking for eggs.

First a group shot. Have you ever tried to take a photograph of 25 young children without some of them turned around/making faces/poking their neighbor/crying/etc.? Yeah ... Not. Going. To. Happen. That's okay, though, they're still cute. Sierra is there in the front row next to Allie (6), who I instructed "Don't let her go." I had to at least keep her on the step long enough for her to be in the picture. Sierra had already spotted the eggs in the grass and was determined to get over there and pick them up. Oh, did she howl when I wouldn't let her because it wasn't time to start yet!
But then ... it was time to start! Sierra was excited. She would pick up an egg, put it in her basket and then run off (without her basket) to find another one (with me calling, "You forgot your basket!").
Getting some help from Daddy

Of course, when you finish your egg hunt, you have to investigate the booty.

And check out what everyone else found!

I mentioned that it's tough to get a great picture with 25 kids. Turns out, even getting 3 1-year-olds to all look at the camera at the same time is not much easier. Hey, at least we got all three mamas looking up and smiling! Here are Harper, Sierra, and Sophia with Lorae, me and Sarah.

Can you believe that it was just a year ago when these little girls were these itty bitty girls?! I know! It's crazy!

Happy hunting!!
