On Saturday we decided to try the community hunt again. Do you remember last year? Well the mayor of our little city happens to go to my church. I was talking with his wife about the hunt last year and she explained what happened and assured me things would be different this year. So off we went. And things went much smoother.
Bron’s age group was first. All the three and unders lined up with their parents and than off we went. Bron and I stopped at the first egg we found. Bron hovered over it for a while. She pointed at it and looked at me and than at the egg. It was like that for at least a minute if not two. Than finally she bent down and picked it up. When we looked up to see about finding another egg, they were all gone. Which was just fine. Bron was happy and wouldn’t let go of here egg.
So Magnus’ age group was next. His group was very crowded. It took him a while to even get into the field of eggs. He found a few eggs.
Thisbe’s group wasn’t quite a crowded but with the age group being 7-12 you can imagine how competitive that hunt was. Well do I even need to say it. Thisbe didn’t get a single egg.
Magnus was kind enough to share his eggs and Thisbe was a pretty good sport about the whole thing.
Well we took our eggs home and added them to the ones from last year and had egg hunts in the backyard all afternoon.
