We survived Easter without any of our children home, our first holiday without any of the kids. No worries we were not alone, we had each other! We started our day with our favorite tradition of Easter, morning mass. We were blessed with a beautiful day so we packed up food, drink and headed out on the boat for a day of true rest and relaxation.
It was the first Easter without any candy in the house, this was definitely a bonus. We also went without coloring eggs, once again more fun with kids. It has been a long time since we have had Easter Egg hunts, eventually they will return when grandchildren arrive. I missed having the family together in their Easter outfits, a spring tradition I always love.
We were happy knowing our children were happy. We are comfortable knowing change will come as the family continues to grow, move and set their footprints in this world.
On that note I might have set an email to them this morning trying to plan Easter 2017!
