Today that idea has morphed into a full week that we affectionately call Holy Week, where we celebrate the week before Easter as a family with daily devotionals and activities.
After all...Easter is THE foundation of our faith. As parents we want to do all we can to impress into our children's hearts the significance of this holiday.
I mean, who really cares about Christmas if Easter didn't happen. Really.
Today we kicked things off...
We read through the story of what happened on Palm Sunday and even acted out the story. I must say that Jeremiah makes a rather fetching donkey. The kids really got into shouting hosanna too. What? An excuse to shout! Bring it on!
Stay tuned throughout the week for posts about our activities.
You'll also want to be sure to check out Josh and Tasha's blogs throughout the week for even more ideas!
