Celebrating St. Patrick's Day ~ March 17, 2010
~ Breakfast ~
My children insist on Lucky Charms for breakfast every year...
~ Reading Favorite Picture Books ~
We started reading books about St. Patrick on Monday so we would have time to get to them all!
Patrick: Saint of Ireland by Joyce Denham
Patrick: Patron Saint of Ireland by Tomie dePaola
Saint Patrick by Ann Tompert
St. Patrick's Day by Gail Gibbons
St. Patrick's Day in the Morning by Eve Bunting
Saint Patrick by Fr. Lovasik
We've also been enjoying the CD's that came with this book all week, including on the way to and from town for our St. Patrick's Day party.
~ Coloring Pages ~
~ Afternoon Saints Party with our Homeschool Group ~
We had a Potluck lunch with quite a few of the families in our Homeschool Group. Each family brought a display for a Saint of their choice as well as coordinating crafts and/or coloring pages. Our family choose St. Joseph. I will try to post some pictures of the displays a little later. My children had so much fun seeing all their friends!
~ Dinner ~
I had plans to make our Irish Beef and Guinness Stew and Irish Soda Bread, but I didn't have the energy after spending all afternoon in town. We'll have it either tonight or on Saturday. Instead I made some quick and easy Shamrock
Toasties Pizzas. (Snuggles is the only one who won't eat the peppers.)
Inspired by Charlotte, we made a last minute Irish Flag with cucumbers, mozzarella and baby carrots. (Using the only things I could find in my fridge that were green, white and orange.)
~ A Few More Pictures ~
We searched for Shamrocks outside...
... and, just before my camera battery died, I got a quick picture of all six!
