God may have us on a crooked journey, but we are richly blessed!

Last week for Easter we modeled Jesus' behaviour by washing each other's feet. The kids absolutely LOVED this activity, which is apparently a lot like water play for toddlers. We did it in our bedroom, which was kind of a mistake. We should have held it outside, because there is a certain amount of spilling involved.
We used warm water with a little bit of oil.
We tried to explain that this is not play time, that it is an act of service. I am not sure if they understood that, so I told them that we should do nice things for each other like Jesus did nice things for us.
I think the kids took the "washing" part pretty literally because Catherine got a little sponge to help wash Sabrina's legs.
