All Things Irish and St. Patrick!

Oh how I love the story of St. Patrick! And isn't this 1897 dress just dreamy? My imagination runs wild wondering who wore it!
Why did she wear it?
Was she Irish?
Was it for a celebration?
Where did she wear it?
Were her friends envious?
So many questions!

If you didn't get to celebrate St. Patrick's day in your homeschool this year, it's not too late to do a unit study or to file this link away for next year. I absolutely love the story of St Patrick! Go here for lots of goodies to share with your kids for a whole week!  St. Patrick Unit Study

A team of marine archaeologists, led by Frenchman, Franck Goddio, began excavating the ancient city in 1998. Historians believe the site was submerged by earthquakes and tidal waves, yet, astonishingly, several artifacts remained largely intact.
