Spring Egg Hunt and Potluck

I was pleased to see the mommies and daddies and have a chance to talk with them a little. So often during drop-off or pick-up, we are too busy hustling our kids in or out of school to chat a moment. Miss Jennifer really doesn’t want parents hanging around because we’re disruptive. But people don’t want to arrange play dates if they don’t know you. Anyway, it seems Lucas is fairly popular. No less that four mommies approached me about play dates with Lucas. Some of them said things like, “Lucas is so sweet. My daughter talks about him at home all the time.” Nice! One poor mother has to listen to her daughter talk about Lucas when she wakes at 3 a.m. I’m brimming with pride.

Anyway, Ian was able to join us at Ancil Hoffman park where we had a class photo, an egg hunt, and a potluck lunch. He looked so cute sitting on a picnic blanket in the grass and sun, wearing his fancy shoes, slacks, dress shirt, and tie! He was by far the handsomest daddy there.

The park looked glorious today. In fact, the whole world is sparkling and new-looking. Today, it actually looks like Spring has arrived.

Yesterday, Lucas came home with his Easter present from Miss Jennifer. It was a terra-cotta pot of growing wheat grass, with a tiny handmade, white wool bunny hiding in the grass. Adorable.

    Yeah, well, I’m sure the other mom’s were wondering how come their men weren’t as GQ as you were!

    Sara, what else can I say other than your husband is HOT!

    No doubt about it! And it doesn’t matter if he’s wearing a suit or a tablecloth. Thanks for noticing. 😉
