On top of our ongoing southwest unit, we are also incorporationg a couple weeks of the Easter unit from Konos. Last week, we spent some time reading out of the bible about the last supper, we read some Passover books from the library and talked about the symbolism. Also, we made matzah and set our timer for 16 mintues all the while pretendnign to the be Israelites and hurrying around as we didn't have much time before we needed to get out of Egypt. We read about the 10 plagues and talked about different ones and how we would have felt.

Moriah and Jayden acted out, with the help of puppets, the last supper and we reclined on pillows as we enjoyed our Matzah. I am really, REALLY looking forward to this week as I do not do the Easter bunny thing. I tried it, I like it, it just doesn't ever seem to fit into how I am wanting our Easter traditions to go. We really focus on Christ, the colored eggs in symbolism of Him, etc. It's just a very sacred week to me and I can't , for the life of me, get into the Easter bunny. I have friends that do and I think it's awesome....I just can't. Anyways, we have so much planned and I can't wait to take pictures and write about it. Blessed is HE who comes in the name of the Lord!

What wonderful memories you are forging with your children... We have not delved deeply into passover. I love the idea of incorporating the KONOS activities and unit into next Easter season!
