Happy Easter 2012

This morning we took our boys to Easter service at church. We haven't attended church on Easter Sunday for a few years because of the stress involved with the crowds, noise, etc. We made the effort this morning, and I am happy (and surprised!) to say that the boys did much better than we expected.

As we drove to church, we talked about what they could expect when we arrived and what could possibly happen. We also talked about the importance of being flexible if things didn't occur exactly the way we thought. The boys listened.

We brought a small toolkit of things to help them get through the service, including earmuffs for Prince Charming. Monkey didn't need any tools, and he actually listened to the Pastor and enjoyed the music.

It was probably the best I've ever seen them in church. Titan and I are so proud of them!

Happy Easter!

Yay! So happy you had a good Easter church experience. :)

I am still not quite ready to brave the extra-large Easter crowds at church just yet. I was just happy my crew made it through the community egg hunt today without melting down or freaking out the neighbors. LOL!

Hooray! That is an Easter blessing in itself. Church is challenging for us as well. I still brave it, although I spend a good majority of the service 'outside' of the service. But it has gotten so much better. We recently switched churches, which is bigger and noiser; but my old church was filled with as many children as adults, so noises and cries were welcome. They even offered a special service to parents with young children which involved the kids more with instruments and carpet squares; a bit less formal. If it were not at 8am, we would've been there.

A blessed Easter to you and your family.
