I love so many parts of putting an event like this together. I love making it authentic. I love it being an educational tool. I love it being one part social gathering and another part an organized program. My girls’ ideas in the planning process have been brilliant and, in the end, we hoped to plan something that would be a treasured and enlightening experience for children and their families.
Johanna and I have had the basic details planned for some time but most of the costuming, decoration, and finished program came together in one week. One week.
When the evening came upon us, as I predicted, I was running around costuming my kids and pharaoh at the last minute. Thankfully we had a few planned activities for guests as they arrived.
