Last weekend, we went to visit some very dear friends and this is what they were in the middle of making on their dining room table.
Edie, who is seven, gave me permission to share her entry into her school’s egg decorating competition with you. It’s called ‘The Wizard of Egg’ and I love it. Especially the ruby slippers.
I went to school with Edie’s mum from the age of five. Last weekend, we were both remembering how we would spend hours dreaming up ideas and decorating our eggs for competitions like this one. It convinces me of how much we lose when we enter adulthood, how we learn to be ‘sensible,’ how there’s never any time for projects like these.
I’m so grateful for Edie’s reminder of what it’s like to be seven.
