Merrick wanted to give Memphis some presents so he went around the house and wrapped up some things that already belonged to Memphis like a Tom and Jerry DVD and a painted wooden bird house. Memphis still acted surprised.
Merrick's class had a St. Patrick's Day party and these were the centerpieces I brought for the kids. Merrick helped me paint the ceramic planters and then we filled them with gold wrapped rolos and made rainbows out of pipe cleaners. They were a big hit.
Every year we put out a trap the night before St. Patrick's Day to try and catch our friendly leprechaun unfortunately every year he somehow gets away. He's pretty sneaky but this year not only did he leave us a few gifts he also....
After we went to the Please Touch Museum we just had to try some good ol' Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches from the two famous hot spots in South Philly. Sean stood in line for some of Pats cheese steaks and I sat in line for some cheese steaks from Gino's, which happen to be right across the street from each other. In the end, we decided that Gino's had the best Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches and let me tell you something, we can't wait to go back.
Merrick's Pre-school class went on their very first field trip last month to a pizza parlor. The owners wore Mario and Luigi hats and talked to the kids about how pizza was invented. The kids loved it and the best part was they got to eat lots of pizza and then each of the kids were given a pizza kit to make their own personal sized pizzas at home. His school is amazing and I am so glad he gets to be a part of a wonderful institution.
