Last Friday we went to an Easter Egg hunt with my MOPS group. It was really cold and I admit I was not real EGGcited about going, but I didn't want to deprive the kids. So we got our coats on and went. I didn't get any action pictures of the hunt, but here are the kids a little later with their haul.
So what was "selEGGtive" about the hunt??
Well when the hunt started, Rhett walked up to some eggs in the grass. (they were not really hidden. Most of the kids were pretty little, so the eggs were basically just lying all around in the grass.) He just stared at them and wouldn't pick them up. Hollace and I tried to explain to him that he could put them in his basket and take them home, that they had candy inside. Hollace even picked up a couple and put them in his basket for him. He immediately took them out and threw them back on the ground, saying he didn't want those. He left and came to another group of eggs and picked just one up and put it in his basket. I watched him do this for a little while, picking one from a group and leaving many other eggs behind. Finally, I figure out what he was doing........
Yes, he ONLY wanted the BLUE eggs. He didn't get near as many eggs as the other kids, but he was happy with his basket of blue eggs.
