Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Although we're not Irish, we love this holiday. Last night, the kids worked on a leprechaun trap. They decorated it with some construction paper and stickers.
I loved looking at their faces while they were doing it. Talk about concentration!
Bright and early, they headed downstairs to see if they caught one. Not this time, but they did catch some treats. I love keeping family traditions alive. Tonight, we dine on corned beef and cabbage with some potatoes and carrots on the side. After dinner, I have a short story to read to them who St. Patrick was and why we remember him. And of course, there's dessert.

May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.
-An Irish Blessing
