St. Patrick's Day

We started our St. Patrick's Day with a green breakfast....green eggs! I think the kids were all a little hesitant at first to eat the eggs, but they all said that they tasted the same with the green dye in them. We discussed the potato as one of Ireland's main food crops and the history of how it was brought to Europe from the New World. Then, we had cheesy potato soup for lunch.
After school, Madison put together a great scavenger hunt to do outside and a treasure hunt for inside. I was impressed with how she planned and managed it. I just sat back and watched. It was so much fun!I remember as a kid in school I used to tell everyone that they couldn't pinch me because my last name was Green. Well, that doesn't work with the kids, even though it is still my middle name. I had to wear green like everyone else!

Scavenger hunts are so much fun!

When I was a kid we went out for breakfast on St. Patty's day, and I ordered hashbrowns with country gravy. The gravy came out green like your eggs, and I almost refused to eat it... My parents made me eat it though. *lol*
