Lent is also coming to its last week -- the holiest week.
It's easy to get into the secular version of Easter. The one without Jesus. The one that focuses only with the Easter bunny and chocolates and egghunts.
I do not want that for my children.
After Palm Sunday Mass, while hubs was finishing his usher duties, the children and I went around the church to go over the stations. We haven't done our own stations at home, just in school.
I hope to do it one more time before Good Friday. We use this book.

Hubs and I painted at a cookies and canvas class. I made a boy bunny and he painted a girl bunny for the children. I don't have to worry about the children's Easter Baskets (thank you, thank you, my-inlaws and Auntie Feli). I am a lucky mom. I still want to do something special for my children. When i saw the bunny class offered, I asked hubs to paint it with me.
I do not want my children to just remember the bunny though.
So today, thanks to Lacy, I went outside my comfort zone (aka allowing some fingerpainting and a little bit of mess) and we made our Holy Week in handprints.
We still have to finish the details on our paintings. We are letting them dry right now. It ended being a good thing. Their attention span could only handle a few minutes of fingerpainting. The catechizing will have to continue tomorrow.
... and every tongue confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
