St. Patrick’s Day Fun As Unsaintly Unschoolers

17 03 2008

. . .is for us even better this weekend than last year’s party, even more about community and connections, good friends, good food. And even more the kids than the adults, even more high-energy, more entertainment value.

Do you know the word “ceilidh” btw? Suddenly I’m learning stuff I didn’t know I didn’t know! It’s pronounced kaee-lee — sort of, I think — and it’s the same sort of folk-community dance that I remember from my own heritage-steeped summers as a girl in Highlands, GA, clogging and square-dancing at the Dillard House.

Our revelry started Saturday, still going so for now, so let me just say we’re getting in touch with Celtic roots that reach deeper and in more directions than I’d imagined. . . 😉

Meanwhile, here’s a lilting taste of the Scottish family turning Young Son into a real bagpiper: The McIlroys.
