(I modified based on what I had because the second I saw this I had to have one...I added crumbled goat cheese to the scrambled eggs just before they were finished cooking and I used arugula b/c I didn't have any spinach. Delicious!)
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!!!
Here is a picture of how I spent my afternoon yesterday. Any guesses???
(picture taken with my non-iphone phone)
Setting traps for leprechauns, what else?!
Andrew came home from school with a master plan.
After homework was finished we grabbed our bikes,
a journal to record details of the trap locations and materials,
bottles of water for hydration, a copper penny (in lieu of gold)
& handfuls of clovers to use as bait and we set to work.
Complete with rocks suspended from trees, stick walls,
and twisty vines to catch his feet. ELABORATE, I tell you.
It was sunny and I loved every minute of watching his innocent little imagination at work.
We have plans to check the traps after school.
Maybe, just maybe, there is a little boot stuck in one of them as a leprechaun tried to escape!
LOVE. THIS. BOY.
