Easter Weekend


We had a good Easter weekend.  I needed that, especially after a very difficult week.


All week long Theo missed his brother like crazy.  Then on Wednesday we had Vincent's 5 month "angel" date, which sort of blindsided me.  Dan and I have also been trying to figure out what will happen after he completes graduate school next month.


Transitions are not fun.  Theo wants another sibling.  I want some sort of career (and maybe another kid?) Dan wants a meaningful job.  I want it to include money.  It's been tough.


Theo was absolutely gleeful on Easter Sunday.  We finished going through his resurrection eggs during the week, each containing a little object having to do with holy week and with the upcoming celebration on Easter.  Sunday morning he hunted down dozens of eggs in our house (thanks for putting that together, Aunty Amy and Popo!) and got to wear a new outfit, complete with bow-tie and matching handkerchief.


In all, it was a good few days.  Vincent got some new flowers on his grave, we got to eat a nice lunch together and have a nap at home.  Theo got to play Angry Birds to his hearts content on the ipad.  I read a bunch of books.  Dan didn't do any homework.


Hooray for happy endings!  (or I should say, beginnings!)

Hi friends! Thanks for the comments... and yes, Theo is so adorable, isn't he? He was so cute in church, he walked up with a little smile and swagger knowing how adorable he was... (next lesson, try to teach humility... perhaps when I learn it...) @Anita: I would have loved to see Stephen's bow tie, I'm sure it was super cute!
