Egg Hunt

Today was Katie's Easter Egg Hunt at school.  She couldn't wait to go and has been talking about it all week.  We have several Easter baskets at the house so she picked out the one with pink and polka dots.  I dropped her off at school and planned to return when it was time for the hunt.

Ms. Beth, one of Katie's teachers, gave the ground rules for the egg hunt.  They all walked to the grassy area outside their classroom.  As soon as they heard the word "go", all of the kids started running toward the eggs.  There are 14 or 15 kids in her class.  Katie was off and she was picking up eggs quickly.  She didn't follow the rest of the kids but just went after the eggs.  After all of the eggs were picked up, the kids headed back to the class.  They all left their baskets outside.  The teachers wanted everyone to have the same amount of eggs so a few parents made that happen.






Next up was the party in their class during snack time.  They were having pretzels, an Easter lollipop and ice cream sundaes.  Katie waited in line for her turn very patiently.  When it was finally her turn, she decided that she didn't want any of the ice cream and just wanted to sit with me.  After a few minutes (and when most of the kids were done eating), she wanted to eat her ice cream then.  She enjoyed it and ate some of the lollipop too.  As soon as we got in the car after school, she wanted to eat all of the candy she had gotten at the hunt!  Guess she wanted to have it all to herself.  Looking forward to the next hunt on Easter.
