That means Happy St. Patrick's Day in Irish!  And a happy one to you all!

A little known fact about me is that when I lived in Galway, Ireland for a year of college, I took Irish as a class.  Like, the language.  I don't remember much other than basic pleasantries and how to count to ten.  But that's still pretty cool.

On Friday, Jack's school had a parade of the kiddos wearing green.  Despite his sartorial independence, he was happy to participate when I explained that it was for a parade.  

On Friday, Jack and his classmates also had to bring in something that begins with the letter "u" for show and tell.  His new Ugly Doll would certainly fit the bill.  And, lo and behold, he's green.

It was a perfect storm.


Hope your St. Patty's Day is a perfect storm of Guinness, potatoes, and good times.

Slainte,
Heather

  2. Good going. As we never want all that pinching when we forget to wear green.

    The use of St Patty's....."It gnaws at them. It riles them up. It makes them want to fight… you know, more than usual." ;)
    On that note, I shall grab my shillelagh and be off!

  3. Happy belated St. Patrick's Day to you! You know, for my name being Erin and all, I'm not nearly Irish enough. To think, I didn't even wear green (but only because I never entirely got out of my PJs)!
