Today was the first day of Spring Break!
This morning we went to my sister's house, along with my mom, my other two sisters, and all of our kids, to dye Easter eggs. Yay!
Beforehand, Zane insisted that he really wasn't interested in dying ANY eggs, thank you very much. He didn't like dying eggs, you see. Katrina and Houston both said that they really only wanted to dye 3-4 eggs each. So i bought and boiled a dozen and brought them along.
I insisted that Zane needed to at least try dying ONE egg. As soon as he started the first one, he realized that...hey! Dying eggs is fun! Who knew?! And Houston and Katrina both flew through their first 4 eggs as well, and then all three kids looked around pathetically until their cousins and aunts offered them another egg or two to dye.
Moral of the story: Next time, we need more eggs.
We got home at 11:30ish, and the kids almost immediately started asking if we could go to this or that place, and if they could play computer, and what could they do? Couldn't we DO something? Me: "It's the FIRST DAY of Spring Break! Go play outside! Play a game! Read a book!" Them: "Sigh. FINE."
