St Patrick’s day and March Madness

St Patrick’s day often aligns with the NCAA college basketball tournament of which my Tim was a huge fan. As in, must always take off work at the beginning of the tournament and set up as many TVs as possible to watch as many games simultaneously as possible…. He was a hard core college hoops fan. Loved him some mid majority teams and upsets.

He did this 6 years ago when St Patrick’s day was also a Friday. And I had signed up to read in A’s kindergarten class.

This year, St. Patrick’s day was again a Friday. I again went in to read for D’s kindergarten class. This reminded me of that Friday 6 years ago when Tim watched the games and day drank with our neighbor and passed out on the couch at dinner time πŸ˜‚

I love this photograph. My boys.

Many changes in the last 6 years.

Loved reading to D’s class today. 

How I wish Tim was home day drinking to college hoops.

I like to imagine there are infinite screens and views of the game wherever he is now!

***update: I feel it necessary to point out that I did dress D in green on St Patrick’s Day but he had a couple outfit changes that day and ended up in red…. At least not Orange. My father would not have appreciated him being in orange on St Patrick’s day. β˜˜οΈπŸ’š
