The mommies up the street organized an Easter scavenger hunt type of thing. The ringleader of mommy group sent an email around asking if people wanted to participate that they hang something in their tree or on a bush or something, and then she created a master list for it all. Whoever wants to let their kids participate can print off the list and look for the stuff as they go for a walk down the street. The completed checklist can be returned to the mommy and she will, in return, put an Easter treat of some sort on their doorstep. I suppose that except for the part where she will hand deliver their prize, she did really look out for the social distancing guidelines. She was clear that kids shouldn't be hunting around for food or actually going in yards...the stuff on the list is supposed to be hung on a plant or in a window, etc. Generally I stay as far away from that group as possible, but this didn't seem like her worst idea, so I hung a few eggs out in my tree earlier today. I realized when I went out tonight that they were basically invisible because of a branch that dangles down, so I ended up going out tonight and relocating them to the small palm tree thing that is closer to the road. Neither of my kids will participate (Garrett is at his dad's house, and Abby is too young) but as people take their evening walks with their kids, I hope they will have fun. I don't think this type of thing would work well in all neighborhoods, but our neighbors do this kind of thing sometimes and everyone is actually really respectful of each other's stuff when they do it, so it should be ok.
Time for a bath for a little girl over here.
