There was no family Good Friday service this year, so we decided to start ours early. We used the order of service sent by our church, but I substituted all the stations of the cross with a kids version that I picked up a few years ago and we selected our four favourite hymns. Aside from an ill-timed ad on youtube providing some levity in the middle of the service I thought it was a lovely service and the kids did pretty well.
After church we made resurrection rolls with the oven duly guarded by a few enthusiastic kids. Michael was quite perplexed "Where did my marshmallow go?!" Then we decorated our eggs. Michael and Amelia painted theirs with food colouring. Amelia did have a go at decorating with wax.
After egg decorating we went for a distanced walk with Michael's godparents Kate and Joel, along with not-so-baby Lucy. It was nice to catch up.
