Since Easter is quickly approaching, the topic of our after dinner conversation the other night turned to Lent and what everyone was going to give up this year. Nick actually started this discussion and was the first one to say that he was going to give up chocolate and all sweets. He then asked me what I was giving up and I said, "Sweets, Diet Soda, and I might even go as far as giving up wine too".
With that, Sarah, in her most serious voice, chimed in with her "sacrifice"......
She declared that she would be giving up green beans and peas. We all broke out in laughter because these are two veggies that she cannot stand and will not touch if they are on her plate.
Obviously, we have a little work to do with her on the understanding of Lent and what it means to sacrifice. She is probably a little young to actually give up something, but it is never too early to teach them why we give up our favorite things and skip the meat on Fridays this time of year.
Has anyone else decided what they will be giving up for Lent?
