Yesterday afternoon we had our 3rd Little Flowers Girls’ Club meeting for Wreath III, on the virtue of Initiative. A few of the girls weren’t able to make it this month, so we only had 5 girls attend. (Actually we had 7 if you count Rose and Sweet Pea, who was wearing her adorable new Milo Vest!) Nevertheless, it was a great meeting and we are already looking forward to our next one, which will be based on the virtue of Orderliness / Organization. Hummm… Let’s see if I can actually take the initiative and get the rest of the year planned out and organized before then, rather than waiting till the last minute like I did this month! 😉
After our lesson/discussion on the virtue of Initiative, and reading about St. Margaret of Scotland from More Saints: Lives & Illuminations, the girls put together their scrapbook/notebook pages, I used the memory verse for Initiative, a quote from St. Francis of Assisi that tied in well with Initiative, a quote from St. Margaret’s Confessor (Thank you Charlotte!), an image of St. Margaret of Scotland, and a couple images of Black Eyed Susans.

- Card Stock
- Chore Chart Printout (If you would like a copy, you can download my Word Document here, though you will have to modify the fonts, using ones on your computer. Or here is PDF option, with the name spot blank.)
- Glue Sticks
- Laminator and Laminating Pouches (I have the Purple Cow Laminator from Costco and have loved it so far, but the Scotch one on Amazon has better reviews.)
- Magnetic Dry Erase Markers (They are actually cheaper at Amazon then what I paid locally, though it doesn’t look like they have the best reviews. Another option would be to attach a piece of velcro to any dry erase marker and to the chart.)
- Magnet Strips (or old refrigerator magnets)
I wasn’t sure about the chocolate “Black-Eyed Susan” flowers I had made at first, but they sure looked cute on top of the cupcakes and the girls loved them!
pray for us!
