The Leprechaun Hunt

st. ZebThis is a very silly Z7.  He and I teamed up for our local parks&rec Leprechaun Hunt.  Very clever.  They gave us a map and a list of clues to follow.  “Mr. Leprechaun loves to eat fish.  He has been known to catch them from all ‘ACROSS’ the pond” was our first clue to solve.  Z7 knew right away what it meant – the bridge across the lake that people fish from.  When we got there they gave us washable markers to draw  “rainbow mustaches” on each other.

There were eight clues in all.  Each had a silly activity to go with.   B14, E17, and A22 worked at the different clue stations with other volunteers from our church (I’m not sure how our church got involved in this community service project, but I was happy that they took this opportunity).  Everyone said they had a good time, and I know A7 and I did too.

It’s such a blessing to be able to spend the afternoon at the park with those I love on a beautiful (almost) spring day.  I think we received those Irish blessings we worked on during our homeschool week.

An Irish Blessing:

“May god give you…

For every storm, a rainbow,

For every tear, a smile,

For every care, a promise,

And a blessing in each trial,

For every problem life sends,

A faithful friend to share,

For every sigh, a sweet song,

And an answer for each prayer.”
