An Egg-scellent Day...

Yesterday was the kind of day where you don't ask any questions for fear that it might disappear like a mirage...The sun was shining, the temps were in the low 60's (which has been very unusual this Minnesota Spring) and the kids were all getting along.

We had brunch with my parents and brother's family in the morning and the afternoon was spent picking up around the house. The kids went outside armed with a camera, a flip video recorder and the dog. They spent at least 2 hours outside, together and happy. No one came screaming inside that someone was being mean, no one begged to come inside because they were bored...It was quite amazing! When they all did come inside, they all had smiles on their faces and were excited to show us pictures they had taken on their journey.

Harry had to go to football and on the way home he told Erick it had been the best day of bonding with his siblings that he had ever had. It might not have exactly been in those words, but Erick knew that was what he was trying to express.

After football, Becca and Harry sat by the computer putting together the movie that they had made on their walk. Still no fighting or mean words-just teamwork.

Easter was truly a day of renewal and hope for us this year! I truly hope this sibling love will continue to grow and blossom...
