Believe it or not some learning and even a few finals happened that day. I know this because my kids couldn't believe some of the tutors made them work! And, yes, I did let my girls spray temporary color in their hair. That's about as wacky as these kids get thank goodness. They work hard and play hard!
Blaise didn't color his hair but as you can see some of the guys did
I am the Easter bunny scrooge, and I do not do special food and crafts for Holy Week. Oh wait, we did have 'Palm' Sundaes! Monica made sweet, little chocolate palms to garnish the sundaes.
It's all I can do to get the house clean and prepare our Easter Sunday celebration. The important thing during Holy Week is prayer, extra Masses when we can make it, then the exhausting, joyful, amazing liturgies of the Triduum. Those we do.
Of course, the cleaning part is not necessary for an Easter celebration, but when my mother converted to the faith many years ago a lovely, devout Catholic lady mentored her and taught her to clean the house from top to bottom during Holy Week. When I was a kid, we CLEANED during Holy Week. The cleaning I do doesn't even come close to the cleaning we did in my childhood. But it's still an essential part of my Holy Week. LOL

Monica prepared most of our Easter Dinner. The first course was watercress soup. Followed by ham, lamb, a potato/herb tart, roasted asparagus and southern cornmeal/chive biscuits.
