I've always had a fondness for Easter. I still remember my mother getting us ready for church service, in the morning. Before leaving we have our photos taken. Then later it was an Easter egg hunt and a delicious meal.

"The Legend of The Easter Robin: An Easter Story of Compassion and Faith" brought back many memories. The book is beautifully illustrated and written. You'll want to hand this book down to the next generation.



A brief overview:

In the center of the nest lay one perfect egg, the color of a spring sky. The father robin sat on a branch nearby, guarding his family. Tressa spotted raccoon tracks below and a blue jay eyeing the nest. “Gran, how are we going to keep the egg safe?” “We’ll have to leave that one to the Creator,” Gran said.

Robins have built a nest on the window ledge at Grandmother’s house! Tressa is thrilled―and concerned. What will happen to the sky-blue egg laid by the mother robin? As more eggs appear, Tressa witnesses the daily drama of the robins’ nest and learns how God cares for all creatures. Besides watching the birds, there are Easter eggs to color. And there is a very special story to hear―a tale of long ago about one small bird with a very big heart. How did the robin get its red breast? Tressa is about to find out as Gran tells her the story of the Easter robin.

Brought to life with colorful, tender illustrations, The Legend of the Easter Robin will captivate and teach your child about compassion and faith.

Community garden lot, Craig Ranch Regional Park, Las Vegas

This week, I'm busy creating a school vocabulary parade costume for our granddaughter. She has chosen the word, 'popcorn'. So I've stopped by Pinterest for some inspiration. Now armed with a plan and a supply list, I'll head out, to the local craft store!

Spring is arriving in our neck of the woods. That means it's time to repot our plants and secure a lot at the community garden. I'm wicked excited because it's going to be a family affair. Our son and his family joining in the fun.
