So, we decided to head out for my favorite Dad's-got-a-day-off actvity. Grocery shopping!! No, seriously. I love grocery stopping. (Cue Carson: Mom, you don't love it. You really enjoy it. Love is for people - Like me and God.) We headed out about 10 and quickly realized something was off. Not a car anywhere. I'm naively thinking I've reached grocery-shopper Nirvana: well-stocked shelves and no crowds. Tony, the astute one of the expedition, has a clearer picture. "Lisa, I bet they're closed today." Oh. That's probably it. He was right so we came home and took the rental car back instead. It had a flat tire. The long-term blog readers are not surprised.
We went to church at 4:00 on Good Friday. It was a neat service that we all enjoyed. We sat on the floor to watch the presentation.
The kids in their Good Friday finery. Even their eyes match their outfits!
Although I again felt like a criminal, I went ahead and videotaped a few portions of the service. I'm hoping this gives y'all a touch of the experience of worshipping bilingually.
Saturday, we finally made it to the grocery store and PriceSmart. A grand time was had by all. We cleaned and emptied boxes the rest of the time. And I made a meal with my groceries and my pots and pans. Much excitement! After dinner, we dyed our brown eggs. I was quite concerned that the eggs wouldn't turn out well, but they were BEAUTIFUL!! I love (Cue Carson's lecture again) warm-toned colors so they were perfect for me.
Easter Sunday we attended the 7:30 am service. In my mind, this was a great idea. Everyone was up and ready to go and looking great!!!
