St. Isidore the Farmer

365 Fun Facts for Catholic Kids by Bernadette McCarver Snyder was a FHC gift for Lee. This fun little book is a compilation of fun little ideas, one for each day. Yesterday was the feast day of St. Isidore the Farmer and in this book we learned that he prayed as he plowed. In Mexico, his feast day is still celebrated by farmers decorating their animals with wreaths of flowers. We didn't want to be left out so in the spirit of St. Isidore we, well actually I didn't get involved except for the picture taking, decorated the chickens with bows and ribbons. Imagine making a wreath and slipping it over the head of a calf, challenging, but manageable. Now imagine trying to stick a bow to the head of a chicken and tying a lavender ribbon around it mid-section, challenging, almost impossible. For your viewing pleasure here are a few pics.

And yes, those chickens are in the house. I couldn't get outside fast enough with the camera so they brought them to me.

  1. Do you know of any way to put a harness on a chicken, so it can walk in a 4th of July parade? I can sew, so if you know it'll work, and can describe it, I'm all ears! Seriously.


I love chatting with my readers. So go ahead and comment to start the conversation.
