Happy St. Patrick's Day

Today is St. Patrick's Day.  I found some interesting facts out about St. Patrick.
      -He was originally from Britain and when he was 16 captured by Irish raiders and sold into slavery in Ireland
      -March 17th is the date of St. Patrick's death.  He was in his 70's when he died.
      -He escaped slavery and went back to Britain to study.  During this church study peroid, he had a dream that he needed to go disciple to the people of Ireland
      -He used a three leaf clover to explain the Trinity
      -His name prior to sainthood was Patricus Magonus Sucatus

For dinner we had corned beef sandwiches.  The weather was so beautiful and we went out to play after dinner.  This was the first time we have been out this year and the kids loved it.  I am so looking forward to summer!
