Easter Morning

Was really warm and wonderful, in the high 60's and not too windy.

Jet had no clue why this herd of children started rampaging all over the church lawn and grounds; but he cheerfully went out onto the lawn, falling a lot with the uneven ground, but he didn't seem to mind that at all. He had one purple egg in his sights, though it took him a while to figure out that he was supposed to be interested, long enough for two different kids to pick up that egg and put it back. The third was a little girl, who suddenly realized that Jet was finally making his slow way towards the egg, and she grinned and held it out for him. He took a few tries before he finally got it, but he sucked on the plastic shell happily after.

He also saw one in a bush while I was with him and he lifted his hand in a point in that general direction, so I picked him up and let him try and pull it from the bush. The bruce spruce was pretty prickly, so he gave up pretty quickly, but he took it eagerly from me when I pulled it out.

So Jet got his first two Easter eggs yesterday.

Isabel and George had gotten Jet an outfit from Thailand, so Jet looked like a little Thai boy in cool cotton clothing and sandals, while everyone else was in colorful Easter formal clothing.

Jet also got to meet two bunnies, and he surprised me by being really gentle with them, patting them gently over their twitching noses. He seemed fascinated by the noses, watching them very closely. He was very good about touching them very gently, though, which I was very glad of.
