The Easter Egg Rush

01 April 2018  

Saturday was a day for Easter eggs and lessons in kindness.

Hundreds of very excited youngsters lined up around the edges of the Prescott Mile High football/track field where tens of thousands of Easter eggs were scattered. The Easter egg hunt was scheduled to start in just a few minutes at 2 PM.

Suddenly, the "do not cross" tape snapped, and kids rushed on the field. It was about 10 minutes early. 

There was a mad rush in the quest to get as many eggs as possible.

Parents were allowed to come out on the field with their children.

Some kids looked a little overwhelmed. 

Others were ready for the challenge.

Most had big smiles on their faces.

Others just didn’t quite feel the joy. 

Of course, you’ve always got to check your loot.

But a few kids didn’t get any at all.

To the rescue came - not the Easter Bunny - but other kids willing to share their bounty. 

Final lesson? Sometimes the only thing to do is just lay down and take a nap.
