A Wee Bit








May there always be work for your hands to do.
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine on your windowpane.
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

~ Irish Blessing~




























Our day started out with a trail of gold chocolate coins and a wonderful hunt! Followed by a breakfast of Lucky Charms with green milk and green scrambled eggs! Then each of the children made their very own edible rainbows! They spent the rest of the day at an indoor playground and swimming at an indoor pool...... We are on spring break! I love days like this!


Hope you all have a beautiful and blessed week! Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Oh Sibi... Emma and Ashton are getting so big and more ADORABLE each day. You are the sweetest Mom. Just now I've decided to keep an ispiration notebook of all the adorable things you, and other amazing Mom's who blog, do for the children. You make everyday special and I want to do that when I'm a Mom. What a great day you all had, enjoy the rest of Spring break :)

That rainbow is the cutest thing I have ever seen, we will be having them for snack some day soon. I love all of these ideas, I never really know what to do for St. Patty's Day, but next year I will know what to do. Thank you for your sweet and encouraging words yesterday, I needed them, I was up to my elbows in laundry caused by a stomach bug, that has hit my house, yuck!


Have a beautiful, blessed day

So precious! I love holidays and seasons but I never did much for St. Pat's day until my boys went to school. One of the associate teachers made a big fuss of the leprechaun visit- mussing things up, turning over a chair, etc- while the first graders were out for recess. Mine loved it and looked for the visit of the ornery leprechaun every year after that.

And can I add how sweet is that little "nap time" sign hanging on the doorknob? Love it.
