Christ is Risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life!
Last night was beautiful. I wish Dory wanted me to carry her in the procession and sing with her, but she wanted her Papa Gary. Dorothy was committed to taking it all in and staying awake so she wouldn’t miss communion. She was a tad fussy but mostly just wide eyed and gently swaying as her whole body tried to sleep while she focused on keeping those eye lids up.
We sat with the newly illumined David and his friend Franz afterwards and feasted on cheese and sausage and afterwards we collected Marina from the bookstore where she was sleeping and came home to bed.
After we went through our Pascha baskets and found eggs we had a feastly breakfast and now we’re playing. Soon there will be an early nap and then we’ll go back to church for Agape Vespers and more feasting! Plus a bouncy house…
Check out our egg dying and the egg hunt.
