The egg hunt was conducted mainly by the parents with token participation by the children. Our neighbors helped their daughter collect eggs, we helped Wythe find eggs and tried to convince him to pick them up and put them in the basket. A couple of times we succeeded but he was mainly interested in picking up the eggs and throwing them. Quite a few were thrown into the pasture by a little boy who shall remain unnamed. I'm sure it confused the horses the next day, I mean, how often to you have brightly colored eggs growing amongst your grass???? I am sure that each year the children will grasp the concept of egg hunting/gathering a little more.
