St. Patrick's Day

Today Hunter went to a St. Patrick's day parade.

His favorite part? The Irish Setters (dogs), and the candy of course.

It's not a big holiday on our list, but we learned a little history about it anyway. We read the book "St. Patrick's Day" by Dorothy Rhodes Freeman, which was pretty interesting and gave us a general idea of who he was and what he did, and how certain traditions came to be associated with him (like leprechauns, heavy drinking, and clovers).

The holiday wasn't a huge focus of ours but he had a fun day anyway.

"O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou didst march through the wilderness... The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God..."
Psalm 68:7-8

Hunter is 4 years, 0 months old
