St. Patrick's Day

Today is St. Patrick's Day and we had doughnuts with green sprinkles and green colored milk for breakfast. As we sat down to breakfast I spoke on who St. Patrick was and the story of St. Patrick's Day. He was a man with a mission to save the Irish by teaching them about Christ and according to Irish folklore he would use the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity.

I encourage you to learn what the day is really about and teach your children so they know why we celebrate certain days and certain people. And have fun with the day. Do crafts, color you food, make a special meal or anything else that will help you and your children remember that's there's more to this day than just celebrating the Irish. Blessings to you all.
