First, we had to scatter all the eggs. A bunch of us moms carried bags upon bags of eggs and "hid" them all over the playground. It got to the point where we were hurling them all over the place because we just couldn't walk anymore without crushing plastic.
Then all ten of the Kindergarten classes trooped out and made a ring around the yard. Was everyone acting like they were already full of sugar? Oh yes, they were.
Zack made sure I knew he hadn't cheated and snagged an egg before the whistle blew:
And then he just acted a little goofy. I don't know if he thought he was the Easter Bunny or the Easter Monster at this point....
And then, mass chaos. In 45 seconds, it was all over. Hundreds upon hundreds of eggs were snatched up.
I was very proud of my munchkin -- and actually, proud of his entire class. Some of the kids didn't get as many eggs as others, and there was a lot of trading and giving away of eggs. Zack was a sweetheart, passing out eggs to friends. I couldn't have asked for a better kidlet.
Asked how he thought the day went, he said, "It was Number One!"
