Palm Sunday 2016
Easter is such a beautiful time of year, and as a family we celebrate it fully and the real reason for all it has to offer.
Out of all the Easter season celebrations, Palm Sunday has always been my favorite--as a mom. There is nothing more pride-provoking than watching your children march in to the church waiving palm branches and singing about the coming of the Lord. It will move you to tears, or near tears each time. At least it does me.
And, this year was no different, despite the fact that yet again there was only 1 Shipley child parading in among the congregation.
It won't be long before big brother will take the hand of little brother and lead him in the Palm Sunday processional, much like big sister lead her little brother so many years ago.
Palm Sunday 2013. Apparently the first time we let him walk down the isle with a palm branch. I forget how much of a handful he has always been, and I realize, I probably didn't let him go with her until then! He would have just turned 4.
