A bushel of this, a peck of that, with a barrel and a heap of love

Apparently in our house we really like to count down to big events and holidays. My oldest son now has a calendar in his room and knows what month it is and what we are doing on any given day. It just occurred to me this afternoon that not only is it the first day of spring but it is 12 days until Easter Sunday. I was digging through the Easter supplies and came across an egg carton with plastic refillable eggs that my son had made in Story hour at church last year. I thought, "Am I too late?" But if you include today and Easter Sunday it is 12 days. So I found a couple more egg cartons and filled them with numbered eggs and we'll begin today to countdown. (I only had enough small candy to put in the first one so I'll go to the store tomorrow to get some Easter specific candy and fill up the rest.) It is pretty simple but fun for the kids.
