Connor has had an interesting start to the swim season. Last summer she had zero fear. It was scary to us. She would literally jump in anytime, any place and we had to work diligently to scare her about what would happen if she didn't take precaution.
This year we restarted swim lessons and the fear came out of nowhere - surprising all of us. It was like a different child had been born. But after 10ish lessons her confidence is seemingly back. See this video from her last lesson. Lots of treading water, but remarkably little flailing/struggling/screaming. It is going to be a fun summer for our little fish!

Connor awoke Easter morning alert and searching for signs of the Easter bunny. My very favorite time of the day is when she comes bounding into our bed full force and burrows under the covers. It is a rare moment to squeeze and snuggle her before the activity of the day makes her wriggle away. On Sunday we even had a moment to talk about why we celebrate Easter. I told her it was the day Jesus went to Heaven to be with God. That may be just enough for this age. But it seemed to stick and I was happy to insert the meaning before the jelly beans took over.

I am not sure we have ever been home for Easter. This year we made a point of avoiding travel and staying home to enjoy our church Easter celebration. Today was the little kids' egg hunt. The event started with a yummy breakfast inside in anticipation of the eggs that were to come.

I spied these in the grocery store and knew my little one would eat them up - literally! They are Easter egg cookies you first color with food color markers! Indeed it was a special Friday evening treat. We colored away and then ate.

We are relishing the past month of low key weekends. No travel. Accomplishing tasks. Soaking in the blooming flowers, our neighbors, and "nesting" away as we anticipate a new baby coming. A couple of weeks ago Kirk pulled out the sprinkler to let Connor jump around in the yard. (Can you believe it was so warm in March?!?)
Thanks Mom for a fun weekend. Connor will always remember she dyed her first eggs with you!
