Dakota House Easter Party

Thank you to Mrs. Yamaichi's E.C.L. class at Garfield Elementary for the Easter baskets they assembled, and the amazing Easter feast food--all delivered right to our door. What a wonderful celebration we had at Dakota House.

We played an elaborate Easter Egg Relay, enjoyed a beautiful meal of ham, homemade mashed potatoes and green beans together, and then settled in the living room--25 kids and three helpers--and watched the story of Jesus: His ultimate sacrifice and His miraculous resurrection.

Here are just a few pictures; I wish I could capture the feeling of the day: a joyous family gathering tucked safely away from the chaos out on the street. It was glorious.
