Bards and Dragons

Sounds like a game doesn't it?
Well, actually today is the 444th birthday of William Shakespeare AND it is St. George's Day!
So with all this ENGLISH celebrating going on, what are YOUR plans for the day?

  • My kids are in their English outfits (Well... most of their clothes are English, but Rebel's is the England rugby shirt ;)).
  • We will have Shepherd's pie for dinner (I admit, THAT was planned BEFORE I knew what today was ;))
  • We have English weather today. (OK I had NO hand in that one ;))
  • We will listen to the Homeschool Radio Show Specials
  • I will trawl the blogs in search of other ideas like the Dragon Cake for teatime!

Happy Birthday Shakespeare and Happy St. George's Day Everyone!


  1. We are making St. George cupcakes over here. They're in the oven as I type!

  2. Is it celebrated much over there then ?? Or is that just you?? :P

  3. Not really. The Catholics do stuff (if you visit the links in the post you'll see that) but otherwise no :) You'd think that the same would be said of St. Patrick's day, but that is HUGE over here, but St. David's day passes by unnoticed and with no leeks or daffodils :/

  4. Bards and Dragons... I LOVE it!!! Totally sounds like a game! You have an absolutely lovely blog! Isn't this image of St. George the coolest!?!?! Thank you for visiting my blog.

    Great idea on the Shepherd's Pie!

    Happy St. George's Day!!!

  5. I love the Dragon cake! My kids have 3 birthdays in May and Tuesday is my father's birthday, so I can probably use that idea for one of them!

    Next week we were participating in a reading of "A Midsummernight's Dream." This week kind of flew by for us!

    I tagged you by the way. See if you would like to do it.

    Peace and Laughter!
