St. Patrick's Day Parade

When our girls were little they had the opportunity to take nine Irish Dance lessons one spring leading up to our parish's St. Patrick's Day Celebration. The girls have always wished to continue learning to Irish Dance, but there just weren't any options near our old home. When we moved to Idaho last fall they were so excited to be able to join the classes here which are taught by a fellow parishioner out of her home. This weekend they got to dance their way through downtown Coeur d'Alene in this year's St. Patrick's Day Parade! Meanwhile the rest of our family enjoyed watching the parade with friends. 

Happy St. Patrick's Day! 


  1. What a wonderful opportunity! So glad your girls have the chance to continue their dancing. I love listening to the music and watching Irish dancing-guess there's some Irish in me somewhere!

  2. We are neighbors! I hope to some day meet you in real life in some Catholic circle around here. We go to a different parish, but we are heavily involved in the local homeschool co-op.

  5. Thank you so much for your always lovely posts! I started following you when we lived in Maryland years ago, while my husband was in graduate school in Catholic U. Almost five years ago we moved to Idaho, where my husband got a job and still continues to write the dissertation ( almost done.) Now you moved here! It is so fun to see you all in pictures from God’s country!

  11. Such a special family outing! Your beautiful daughters are lovely in their dance dresses. Such beautiful Celtic knot-work accenting the dresses...most especially the Trinity Knot. So happy for them to be able to be in an Irish Dance class. The weather looked beautiful for your family to enjoy watching them dance in the St. Patrick's Day parade. I married into an Irish family and it has been a true joy to learn about the Irish customs and culture.
