March will be a condensed month since E will be with her grandparents in Texas while Fairley’s grandparents visit us in NY for one week. Either way, I want to make much of the upcoming holiday this month – Easter!! There are so many great activities to do to celebrate Easter (and the resurrection, not just the bunny side of things), but I also know that the girls are both still a little young for many of these things. If we don’t get to them all this year, we’ll have a wealth of ideas waiting for us for next year!
