St. Patricks day!!

We found new ways to celebrate St Patrick's Day this year - and just have fun with leprechauns, rainbows and pots of gold, shamrocks and potatoes! We DID actually study about the real Saint Patrick and his life! Did you know he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and forced to tend the pigs for 6 years? Talk about crazy adventure!! Later in his life - he returned to Ireland to share his life there. He is known by the shamrock - because he used it as a tool to share his faith. I love knowing the history behind our traditions & festivals....

We also had fun making shamrocks with potato prints, and eating delicious cupcakes decorated with edible rainbows. The girls also loved their green smoothies for breakfast!

Happy St. Patrick's Day from our Scotch-Irish clan!
