We had a Saint Patrick's Day party at our house. Everyone came wearing green and I sprinkled magic green glitter in their hair (except for all of the silly boys who thought it was too girly.) As they were running around in the backyard, I thought there was no way I would be able to get them interested in sitting down to hear a story, but they were all so cute and polite and sat down quickly. (Homeschooled kids are the best!) I read The Ring of Truth by Teresa Bateman. The kids had fun saying what they would do if they were in the story and predicting what would happen next. Afterward they played a couple of games and we then let them loose to eat green cupcakes and run around the backyard.
