Hannah's classmates may ask her if leprechauns packed her lunch! No magical little green men, just her silly Irish mom. She started her day with the proper St. Patty's Day breakfast of Lucky Charms. (She usually does not get that much sugar for breakfast on a school day, but it is a special occasion!) I served them to her and spoke in my best Irish accent that " It isn't everyday that you get Lucky Charms on a school morning and they are magically delicious!" She told me that she had never heard a worse Irish accent! Then her dad came in and said good morning and she asked if that was supposed to be an Irish accent because it was worse than mom's! She really knows how to build us up!

An Irish saying:
There are good ships, and there are wood ships,
the ships that sail the sea.
But the best ships are friendships, and may they always be.

An Irish blessing:
May your thoughts be as glad as shamrocks,
May your heart be as light as a song,
May each day bring you bright happy hours,
That stay with you all year long.

Quote from St. Patrick:
Christ beside me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ within me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me.

Happy St. Patty's Day!
