FTGA Easter Egg Hunt
The Friends through Guatemalan Adoption annual Easter egg hunt was held over the weekend and everyone had a wonderful time. The morning weather was sunny and bright and the kids were too. The egg hunt itself was about 4 minutes of a pack of kids running and happily snatching up candy filled eggs, very fun... and then afterward, the kid pack just hung out played on the playground and enjoyed each other. Jamie especially had a blast and referred to all of the other kids as "friend" if he didn't know their name. As in "hey friend, do you have any gum?" We are so lucky to live in an area with such an energetic and fun Guatemalan adoption group... the kids have so much fun and it's great for them to connect in an easy way with other little guys with a shared history. I am especially grateful for the organizer moms who spent many hours stuffing those plastic eggs in order to make it all happen!
