First a skiing update: I drove back up to the resort only to to discover that A. I had loaned my ski poles to Stefan earlier in the day and B. my all-day pass had disappeared(most likely lost during Mary’s epic descent). Yes, this is totally typical Michelle behavior. You can take a minute now to step away from the computer and laugh at me. Happily, luckily, I had a good book in the car.

The leprechauns went pretty easy on us this year. Yes, they did get into the Lucky Charms that we bought especially for St. Patty’s day, turned the milk green and left all sorts of little messes around the house. But they really wreaked some havoc at Mary’s preschool down the street.

All the kiddos arriving at preschool had to follow a long trail of tiny green footprints. The prints went down the sidewalk, into the school, over chairs, under tables, across balance beams, through tunnels, up the wall and finally ended in the classroom where the mischievous little Irishmen had dumped out all the toys. At snack time the water had turned “GREEEEN!” and Mary was certain that she spied a real leprechaun in the tree outside the classroom window.

I love this little school that feeds my children’s imagination as much as their intellect.
