Happy St. Patrick's Day! We had a festive day that included leprechaun catching (unsuccessfully), wearing of green, munching on rainbow snacks and eating a green dinner!
Harris and Grace both decided last minute that they would build a leprechaun trap. Harris was very disappointed that his alarm didn't sound and catch the sneaky little guy! I was disappointed that they left muddy footprints in my windowsill- at least they left behind some gold nuggets.
Both children paid special attention to how they dressed for the day. Graced wore a rainbow and Harris channeled a leprechaun. It was all his own doing, I promise! I chuckled almost every time I looked at him (those were his Willy Wonky pants from Halloween!).
After school, the children had a rainbow snack and green milk. I got the printable from here via Sherri.
For dinner, we had split pea soup (delicious) and brown soda bread (also delicious). The bread recipe came from my friend Sonja so I felt very authentic!
I would like to be able to share a treat with you that I had planned that I just knew was going to be so cute. Unfortunately, we had a baking malfunction and will have to try again tomorrow even though the day will have passed- though I'm pretty sure that rainbows should be for every day!
