Happy Easter

We woke up to a beautiful sunrise this morning.  The skies were a little threatening, but our Good Friday snow was melted, and for a brief moment the sun was shining.

The children discovered their resurrection cookies, out of the oven, and empty, reminding us that Christ is risen.

We stopped for a moment to snap a quick shot of the children, before loading up for church.

The girls decided on matching outfits again this year, but still found plenty of room for expressing their individual personalities.

After our photo shoot, we headed to church for a double blessing of an Easter service, and witnessing G's baptism - a very special addition to the day.

Then, it was home for a family dinner...

...and verse themed candy hunt.

I'm extremely thankful for a fun day of celebrating, and for joy of Christ that makes it all worthwhile.  Our hearts go out to our fellow believers in Nigeria, and other parts of the world where it is not possible proclaim the name of Jesus without danger.  We are praying God will grant you strength, peace, and boldness.

Seek the Lord while He may be found; call on Him while He is near. Isaiah 55:6

It's great to be a homeschooler.

What a happy Easter indeed!

One of my boys decided he wants to be baptized today as well, so I'm super excited about today also.

I love all of their outfits, and they did each express their individuality.
