Our "Green Day" Party

I really enjoy St. Patrick's Day. Part of the reason is because it's the day when I was first kissed (a fond memory) and the other part is because it's fun to go all out wearing green and listening to Irish music. Growing up in Gilbert St. Patrick's Day was always during Spring Break. But up here in Snowflake and Pinetop we are still in school so I really love doing projects and having a "green day" party.
Here is a picture of my classroom with our lucky clovers hanging from the ceiling.


My cute class ready to eat their morning snack.



Our morning snack: "green" chocolate covered strawberries.
One of my boys posing. All my kids got a picture taken with these glasses by the sign they made. I printed out each picture and made a magnet for their parents.



One of my girls playing with green play doh that we had made. Each kid got to take some home.

Our afternoon snack: green milk and cookies.

We had lots of fun. I played my Irish music all day and one of our highschool students taught them an Irish dance. We read Irish books and sang some St. Patrick's Day preschool songs. Sometimes I just really love my job :)

I'm jealous. I would have totally preferred to be there eating chocolate covered strawberries instead of being at dreadful work all day, heheh.... :)

Man! I really am missing out by not living up there! My kids would love to have a teacher like you and I'd love to bring my ATV woes to your hubby!

how fun! it's spring break in EP right now, so Brody didn't come home with anything from school. Kinda a bummer since I didn't do anything for my boys, but I did make green eggs for breakfast that morning. Those cookies look yummy by the way;)
