St Patrick’s Day

Hope you all had a festive St Patrick’s Day!

I enjoy this holiday for several reasons…

– #1… gotta love the corned beef

- #2…Green just happens to be my favorite color. I have several wardrobe options. :)

- #3…The history of St Patrick is most interesting and is great for homeschooling lessons, or just life lessons.

- #4… The possibilities are endless, when it comes to using the green theme (not to mention green food coloring).

- #5… St Patty’s day helps break up a very long month.

 

Here is what we did to celebrate our Irish roots, have fun with green, and most importantly bring it all back to Jesus…

 

Green Pop Corn… well a few kernels were green.

St Patrick used the shamrock (Ireland’s national flower) to teach people about the Holy Trinity. We made our own shamrocks…

We finished off the day with a traditional St Patrick’s day meal at my parents.

Here is the Nelson 5 all decked out in green!
