Watching The Kids

Remember when you were a kid and was able to reap the eggs and candy that someone else had hide for you?

I remember when I would make a candy trail all through the house starting with the kids shoes in their bedroom and leading all the way down the hall into the living room where their big basket or stuffed animal or some sort of prize would be.

My kids always set out their shoes, the night before Easter, knowing the bunny would be putting their favorite candy inside. It's a silly thing but a memory-maker for our family.

The community Easter Egg hunt is a memory-maker too, and it reminds me of how many kind people we have about. Some pay the bill, others fill the eggs, yet others take time to hide the eggs. They say it takes a community to raise a child and when they gets involved like they did at Easter or do at Halloween or Heritage Trails, etc., it puts a smile on your face every time and brings warm thoughts of home.

It's one more reason why it's great to live in a small town. Thanks Bank of Stronghurst, Lions members and any one who took time to make a memory for others.
