I don't know much about lent. I the basics like the day before lent starts is
paczki day (which is amazing, but I sadly went the day without a paczki yesterday) and
that you fast from something for 40 days. All the while focusing on Christ and his amazing sacrifice.
So that's all I know about it and maybe I made that stuff up.
But it's always interested me so this year when I read about doing a Lent Tree on Andrea's blog.
Opps... I guess they're called Easter Trees.
Anyway, I thought I'd give it a try. My version is a ghetto one compared to Andrea's.
I bought my trees at Target's dollar spot (the boys were bummed they weren't read) and
I'm just going to use random stuff to create ornaments each day.
Today we read about having faith like a mustard seed and glued seeds on to a piece of paper.
We also talked about fasting. I shared with them that I'm fasting from facebook
and from eating after 7 (tonight's just the first night and I'm already really wanting a snack).
Nathan decided to fast from Caleb's I-touch
and Caleb's fasting from chocolate.
I'm interested to see how serious they are about their fasting :)
What do you do for lent?
