Happy St. Patrick's Day (early!)

We had a wonderful time last weekend at the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Holland. The kids got to bring food to donate during the parade (and picked up their share of candy as well). They really wanted to know the 'real meaning' of the day this year. Sophie wanted to know what it had to do with God because holidays 'always have something to do with Him'. It was sweet and opened up good conversation about St. Patrick! (ok, I had to do a little research I have to be honest!)

Looking forward to Shepherd's pie and soda bread on Thursday! (though I'm not sure they are 'real' traditions!)
