First we all made a handprint rainbow together. We hung the strips of colorful handprints from the fan above the table.
Then the kids made jar lanterns to be the pots of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Then Rohan helped me make some Traditional Irish Soda Bread for snack. We may not have had the celebration and feast Miah had hoped for, but it really did seem like enough to make everybody feel sufficiently holidayed.
Even more exciting (for me) than St. Patrick's Day was last Saturday. The post office called at 10:30 pm and told us to come get our chicks. Actually they told Jeremiah to come get the chicks, because I was in bed. I didn't even know there were people at the post office that late. Last year, we bought chicks locally. This year, we split an order of chicks with a friend, because I wanted blue. Five blue andalusians and five araucanas. And a couple unknown extras thrown in. Today we had sun (amazing!) so we took the chicks and bunnies out to play.
