Happy Easter!

April 27 was Ethiopian Easter…so of course we had to celebrate American style and Ethiopian style.  American:  the children had their first ever Easter egg hunt!  A family brought us all the eggs and candy to be able to do this, and it was a blast.  The children weren’t sure what was going on, but they knew that candy was involved.  No egg was left undiscovered.  Ethiopian:  Ethiopians fast for 2 months before Easter…no dairy and meat, amongst other things.  So, Easter Sunday is celebrated with a huge feast.  Many Ethiopians buy a sheep to make their stews and sauces.  The TH staff and children enjoyed a special lunch that day.  Then we took the older children out for ice cream!  Next, on to Fortuna’s (TH nurse & director) for dinner….and ate more sheep.
