Green is the color of the week
I consider myself pretty lucky. When something unexpectedly good happens in my life, I often attribute it to “the luck of the Irish”. I even was born the day after St. Patrick’s Day. If you are wondering where I am going with this rambling, I was leading into my excuse for posting our St. Patrick’s Day pictures 4 days late. I broke my hand Sunday night. My right hand. The hand that controls my computer mouse. I’m a bit slow these days. So, today I am playing catch up with pictures of the Day Nursery State Government Center St. Patrick’s Day party. Our downtown centers really get into St. Patrick’s Day.
The Federal Center sits at the start of the parade route and our State Center sits on the canal, which gets dyed green every year to kick off the festivities. I’ll let Day Nursery State Center Assistant Director Marti Thiery take over with the rest of the story (because I am getting very good at cutting and pasting text from emails!) This is our Two’s 2 classroom. The teacher in the background is Ms. Patricia, the lead teacher. Leprechaun Jon is our assistant teacher in the PreSchool 3. He was excited to dress up as a leprechaun and visit each of the classrooms during their afternoon parties.
Even the infants got a visit from the leprechaun. Many of the classrooms asked the parents to bring in green treats. As I walked through the building I saw: kiwi, green apples, broccoflower, green colored vanilla pudding, celery and dip, green jello with fruit (made by the children) and assorted green cupcakes and cookies.
I was lucky that the Day Nursery staff kept their cameras handy this week and caught these pictures for me. I hope the luck of the Irish was with you and your family this week!
