{This Moment} Grandpa Gene And His Girls

{This Moment} A Friday ritual. A single photo -no words- capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you are inspired to do the same leave a link to your moment in the comments section below. Wishing you a lovely weekend, and for those who celebrate a blessed Palm Sunday. xo

Stitched By Grace

When it comes to handwork there's clearly nothing this kid can't do! It was her first time doing embroidery and we were all super impressed with how it came out! With some more practice, she will no doubt have this mastered in no time! This project arrived in the October Happy Hedgehog Post box. We're a little behind (as you can tell) but it worked out well since one of the projects for her Colonial America/American Revolution block was to embroider a tea towel. I'm glad we had this project waiting in the wings! xo

Today's Morning Lesson

Today's morning lesson focused on Paul Revere and his midnight ride. We read Longfellow's Midnight Ride of Paul Revere, watched the Liberty's Kids episode and sang along with Schoolhouse Rock's  "Shot Heard Round the World" and made lanterns!

On Saint Patricks' Day

In which the girls don tiny, festive hats to make Irish Soda Bread this morning. 
Nature table decorations, complete with rainbow scene felted by Grace. 
This is seriously the most scrumptious Irish Soda Bread ever (recipe courtesy of my dear friend Kristin)! 
May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world,
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons,
bring the best to your and yours!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day from our family to yours! xo
