Yesterday afternoon, the girls anxiously awaited the arrival of all of their little friends for our 2nd Little Flowers Girls’ Club meeting for the year!
I know it has only been two weeks since we had our last meeting, but with our baby due in December, I’ve scheduled meetings for every two weeks during the Fall and Spring so that I can take December, January and February off.
Our meeting was so much fun and we actually had ALL 12 girls make it for the first time!
As we waited for everyone to arrive, the girls got busy coloring. I was not able to find an extra coloring page of Blessed Margaret Pole, the saint for this meeting, but they all had the pictures provided in their Member’s Guides, and I did have a coloring page for the flower: The Yucca.
Once all the girls had arrived we moved into the living room and started our meeting with our opening prayers. We then reviewed the virtue of Mercy from our last meeting, and the girls reported on the activities they were able to complete from their checklists in the Wreath 2 Member’s Guide. Depending on how many activities they completed they were able to choose 1-4 prizes out of the prize box (aka: my girls old dress up box), which has been stocked with various Coloring and Father Lovasik Books, Stickers, Stamps, Notebooks, Candy, Bubbles, and more!
The girls did a great job, as usual, assembling their notebook pages. (I never knew I could fit SO many people in my little kitchen!)
We then moved on to another craft project. Since Blessed Margaret Pole was a lady in waiting, I thought the girls would really enjoy making tiaras! I ordered an assortment of Tiara’s as well as Self Adhesive Jewels from Oriental Trading, which made it super easy and the girls had so much fun decorating their tiaras!
After the movie it was time for Pizza and Snacks, then the girls all headed outside to play! Erica did an AMAZING job with the “Crown” treats for this meeting. Aren’t they perfect!?!
This has started out to be another great year. The girls are already looking forward to our next meeting, in just two weeks!
Saint Therese, the Little Flower, pray for us!
