What a Wonderful World

What a glorious day! We met the Life Learners at a beautiful old park and had an egg hunt for the kids and simply enjoyed each other immensely. The kids played so well and creatively together. The moms had a wonderful time chatting and getting to know the new family who came for the first time today. I love this life o' mine! I am so Blessed. Psst, click on that one, you won't regret it!

The kids all rushing to find the hidden eggs.
E streeeeeetching to reach that egg.
Some of the kids discovering what their eggs held for them: Coins, stickers, necklaces, band bracelets, M&Ms, whistles, stamps. Lots of cool stuff. A was trading all her candy for "stuff".
The girls and their friend S. A and S were pretending to be horses (a horse?) and giving E a ride.
I don't have a picture, but one of the cool things the kids did today was to draw the world's longest chalk line- it was over 1400 feet long, as calculated by S above and one of the moms, and there were actually two side by side. They drew them all around the bike path surrounding this huge grassy area. They were wondering if the Guiness Book of World Records would be interested!
Funny story. On the way to the park we were listening to Rhinoceros Tap - wonderfully fun music written by Sandra Boynton - and there was this song called O Lonely Peas. E was asking me what that meant. I explained that the person was singing about the peas left on his plate, and how no one loved them and how he had to stay until he ate them and that he would be ninety-one before that happened. A said, "People don't really do that, do they?" meaning make their kids sit at the table until they finish eating their food. They were both shocked to learn it did happen.
