マイストーリ
Even though it is a little late, I thought it would be fun to have an Easter egg hunt for the Japanese kids that I teach at the pre-school.  Easter was on April the 8th, but it has been raining so much lately, we haven't had a chance to go to the park without getting covered in mud.  Today, the weather was perfect for playing outside!  First, I went to the park with the eggs and hid them behind bushes, under benches, and next to trees.  I was careful though、to watch out for birds because last year while I was doing the same thing, a giant crow came and snatched one of the eggs and flew off!  After hiding them, the kids came and looked for them.  They seemed to really enjoy it, and one of the little girls ate half of her egg!

I remember when I was a kid, in the days prior to Easter, I couldn't wait for my mother to boil the eggs so that my brother and I could color them.  She would prepare many colors to dip the eggs in, and we also used crayons to decorate them.  I was very serious about coloring my eggs; to me, they were considered a work of art.  After coloring the eggs, we let them dry. Then, the night before, while my brother and I were sleeping, my mother would place the eggs along with many chocolates and candy that she bought in a big Easter basket, one each for the both of us. I remember the baskets were so beautiful, filled with green cellophane, brightly colored eggs, chocolates, candy, jellybeans, and sometimes a small plastic toy or stuffed animal in the shape of a bunny.

After waking up on Easter morning, I was so happy to see my Easter basket filled with many goodies.  My mother would let us eat one or two chocolates before going to church.  After we got home, our parents would take the eggs and hide them in the backyard for us to find.  It was always fun looking for them. The funny part was that in all the excitement, sometimes we would forget how many eggs there were and not know if we had found all of them.  I remember one time I found one in the Fall while outside raking leaves with my mom, and we had a good laugh!
