For My Honeybees Five

by | Oct 20, 2009 | Books, Music, Videos | 4 comments

Ever since Twinkle Toes pulled out Over in the Meadow, to point out the Honeybees during “H” Week, my children have been singing this song. They were so excited when I ran across this music video with the same illustrations as their book.

… Over in the meadow,
In a new little hive
Lived an old mother Queen bee
And her honeybees five
“Hum!” said the mother;
“We hum!” said the five
So they hummed and were glad
In their new little hive…

    This was one of my Sunshine's favorite songs when she was little! Thanks for sharing!

    I love that book! We recently had it from the library (I really need to purchase a copy for our home library). Right now we have one in our library basket that is "Over in the garden" and it follows the same song. Also, very cute!

    Thanks for the video!! We too have that version of the book and its one of our favorites. I can't wait to show my children the sweet video.

    This is one of our favorites around here too. Our version has different lyrics though. I'm not sure where we even learned our version!

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.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
