As you know we don't do Easter around here, but we did participate in an Easter egg hunt for the kids.
Our little tribe of expats is keen on creating rituals and traditions for our children. We are a community by default, and they will grow up knowing they have a unique connection to these other expat kids.
So the turning of the seasons and some mainstream celebrations seem natural and obvious choices to bring us together in a special way.
I'm interested in holding a Summer Solstice celebration. One of the other gals decided to throw together an Easter egg hunt. It was sweet fun for everyone. And she made hot-cross bun,s which we can't find here in Montenegro. YUMMO! And the weather was gently warm and sunny.
I was still recovering from a bad cold, but didn't want the Wildflower to miss out. I'm suprised that, although dishevelled, I don't look a fright in the pic.
She, having watched Maisy dvds, had a good idea about the concept of finding hidden eggs. So she was all up for it. When I talked about it on the way, I said, "we're going to look for eggs, they're hiding". And she pipes up with... "in the shrub!"
She cracks me up what she hears and picks up.
And thanks for crossing your fingers for us... we got the plumber up there yesterday and back today. phew
Now, I just need internet access.... which involves buying our own satellite equipment because they simply stopped doing the whole package down in this town. And while we're prepared to pay for the whole get-up, we need to convince the installers from up North to actually make the trip down here to the coast to do the job. We've been waiting about a month. I told Husband to mention a cold beer to them. Honestly, it's how it works here.
