A Rainbow to Make You Smile (Photo Contest)



Happy St. Patrick’s day! Although I am not Irish I enjoy this holiday. I don’t drink so I do not participate in the “adult” festivities but I have fun dressing up in green and looking for people to “pinch”.  Do you remember those days? It was horrific if any child did not show up wearing green. Teachers would have pieces of green ribbon to give to a child that was not prepared.  I learned quickly to never, ever NOT wear green during St. Pat’s day.

I have to admit I don’t think I pinched that many people, I just didn’t have the heart. It’s mean, it hurts and I was such a skinny little thing as a little girl that it may have been dangerous territory for me to pinch anyone, heck they were all bigger then me!

Shh! The IE Mommy has a fun contest...listen up

Thankfully, we home school and don’t have to worry much about the pinching. Oh, I know the twins will think today is all about a green light (no pun intended) on pinching but we’ll just have to ride that one out.  I have a few books and stories that I want to read them about Leprechauns and pots of gold. Who knows… maybe later we’ll go looking for the little “wee men” under our shrubs.

I had a great idea to share a little “luck of the Irish” with you but we’ll get to that in a minute.
