St. Patrick's Day
Happy St. Patrick's Day! With my husband's Irish heritage this is a holiday we always celebrate. This year the kids did a study on St. Patrick the patron Saint of Ireland. We learned who he was, his life, what he believed in, and all he did for the people of Ireland. We did a few sections of a lapbook from Hands of a Child, read a book about leprechauns, and learned how St. Patrick used a shamrock to teach the people of Ireland the Holy Trinity. We also learned a few new Gaelic phrases.
Tonight for dinner we are having a traditional Irish meal followed by an "Irish" cake that Ava Mae and I made together.
