Benjamin and I started out St. Brigid’s Day by coloring this picture I found here, at Waltzing Matilda. This Catholic blogger, Charlotte, makes these coloring pages for all sorts of saints and holy days. This is actually the second one we made. He sent the first one with Daddy so he could look at it at work.
After the Jr. Museum with a new friend and her little boy, Benjamin fell asleep in the car on the way home but never went back down for a nap. So, we just soldiered on with a long walk with Tryna and Baby Jonah, a trip to the grocery store, and started cooking our little feast.
Chickpea Soup, Irish Oat Bread, and Honey Butter. Yum. Read more about St. Brigid and see the recipes at Feast!
To remind me for next year, there are some children’s books about St. Brigid that I want to get to read to Benjamin. Titles: The Life of Saint Brigid: Abbess of Kildare, Saint Brigid’s Cloak, and Saint Brigid and the Cows.
