~ Letter Formation ~
Letter “E” out of Modeling Beeswax
As well as an Elephant and a little nest with (green!) Eggs.
I also made the girls a Letter E Worksheet
in addition to their HWT Wooden Pieces, etc…
(Sorry, no pictures… I didn’t have my camera the first couple days of the week.)
~ Eyebright Fairy Coloring Pages ~
E is for Emperor Penguins
~ Picture Study :: Brian Connelly’s Brown and White Eggs ~
~ E is for St. Elizabeth Ann Seton ~
Saint Elizabeth for with
~ E is for Elsa Beskow ~
These are a few of the books we read at bedtime this week:
Pelle’s New Suit
Children of the Forest
Ollie’s Ski Trip
Peter and Lotta’s Adventure
Around the Year
~ Crafts : E is for Embroidery ~
I then pulled out a Embroidery Kit, which I had purchased on clearance
from Hearthsong a while back, and started to introduce the girls to Embroidery.
I think it is going to be awhile before the girls are really able to embroider on their own, but I just couldn’t pass up this opportunity to try out Charlotte’s Saints n’ Stiches. In fact, she even has a St. Elizabeth of Hungary! The girls helped (mainly watching each step and choosing floss colors), but I pretty much did all of the embroidery work. (It had been YEARS — and even at that, I only ever learned how to cross-stich so I am sure I made plenty of mistakes — but I really enjoyed it!! My super sore fingers, not so much.)
I still need to finish them up by making them into little dolls… Hopefully this week!
Saint Elizabeth of Hungary
One of my Confirmation Saints
St. Therese of Lisieux

Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
