Christ the Lord Is Risen Today!!!

We've had a great time reading and preparing for our Easter celebration this year. I sat in on Jess' preschool class where they were reviewing the Easter story with Ressurection Eggs. Elli had the same experience last year so on Good Friday, we sat down and read the account in Matthew. Then on Sunday morning before church we finished the story and were able to rejoice in the good news of Jesus being Alive! Elli really liked saying, "He is Risen!" in order to get the "He is risen, indeed!" response! It is neat being able to teach them why we celebrate Easter. We still dye eggs and enjoy easter baskets to celebrate springtime but we were able to go deeper with the gospel account this year and that was really neat to share with them.
