This weekend we celebrated Palm Sunday. It's a two day affair now that Palm Saturday (our church's Saturday morning kid activity) is part of our tradition. Henry was a extremely reluctant to go on Saturday morning. He arrived in his pajamas. I was able to change him out of this pretty quickly once at church and his mood improved dramatically. Nana and Grandpa came to take Hazel away and Henry and I stayed for the morning. With cousin Liam and about thirty other kids Henry made crafts, processed with a real donkey, witnessed a foot washing, decorating cookies and dyed eggs. His best work was his super cookie, two layers of frosting and a mountain of candy. Hazel and I also made cookies. Meg spent a nice morning with her mother shopping and enjoying some sinful, peanut contaminated Thai food!

On Sunday just after church we watched Meg race near our house and then drove over to the finish line to watch Meg beat her personal goal. We are proud of her efforts and hope she's able to do more soon!

The kids have been really into making block towers with each other and lots of crafts ... when they're not getting in each others way, etc. Here are some pictures.

8,000 halves turned up seventeen 90% silver halves (1917, 1940, 1941, 1948, 1957D, 1963, 11 x 1964), sixteen 40% silver halves (1965, 3 x 1966, 9 x 1967, 3 x 1968D), five proof halves (1985S, 2 x 1990S, 1995S, 1997S) and one Ecuador 50¢.

17,500 pennies yielded ninety-three Wheats, one hundred nineteen Canadians, nine US dimes, one UK penny, one Brazil 10¢ and one Bermuda 1¢.
