Spring Break

I love spring break! Usually it means time to get outside and uncover what has been hiding under the snow and start turning the dirt preparing it for planting, but not this year. Still it's huddled under a blanket waiting for warmer days. So we'll stay huddled too watching movies and keeping warm, baking bread and cookies and drinking hot cocoa. But it'll be fun to sleep in and laze around, start some crafts and visit with friends. My only fear is that the time will be gone way too quickly! Maybe we'll have to have some "homeschool" days for a bit longer than the 2 weeks. What are your plans?

We're thinking of the good saint tomorrow and all that he did to bring the message of Jesus to Ireland. Armed with his 3 leaf clover, describing to the people the Trinity and the love of God. Today my sweet girl made green cupcakes in honor of the day. What are you doing to celebrate? Don't forget your green or you might get pinched!

I can't believe you get two weeks ... crazy! And that it's cold there. That's too bad. We're also loving spring break but we have much nicer weather.

do you remember Erin, at the age of 2 1/2 or so, marching around the hotel lobby loudly declaring: "The Trinity is Essential!"
