A Bit 'O Luck on this St. Patty's Day!

Written by Carly
Happy St. Patrick's Day! Here is a funny picture of me from last year as a leprechaun! The picture above is of us and our good friends at a Print Museum holding up our Good Luck papers that we printed ourselves! The Print Museum was a ton of fun. We learned about the old printing machines and how they worked. We got to see them in action, and heard a great talk about Ben Franklin and how he was a printer. We saw how the printers made the individual letter stamps and how they had to line them all up to make the sentences! The paragraph that I just wrote would have probably taken them a week to line up and to print on an old printing machine! Wow...
