Highlights from “Z” Week

*I wasn’t able to find all the pictures, or all the worksheets/coloring pages to take pictures of (they were on my desk until a week or so ago!), but here is what I have for Z Week – over 2 years later!  ðŸ™‚

~  Zinnia Fairy Coloring Pages ~

The girls colored the Zinnia Fairy from the The Flower Fairies Alphabet Coloring Book while listening to A Flower Fairy Alphabet on CD.

~ Letter Formation ~
The girls made the letter Z with Modeling Wax, Wooden Pieces and on paper.  I can’t seem to find the pictures from that, but here are some of the Zoo Animals they made out of Playdoh, which was a gift from a friend, and a very rare treat in our home! 😉 

~ Picture Book Science ::  Zoo ~

Here are the books we’ve been reading about Zoo’s:

Z Is for Zookeeper: A Zoo Alphabet
My Visit to the Zoo
Curious George Visits the Zoo

Coloring Pages and Extra Activities from Wild Animals Fun Kit

The girls also helped plan a birthday party for Snuggles with a “Zoo” themed cake!

~ Z is for St. Zita ~

Here is our hand-painted St. Zita which completes our Alphabet of Saints.

They also colored St. Zita Coloring Pages from Catholic Artworks and completed some copywork, which I created at Writing Wizard using the quote from An Alphabet of Catholic Saints.

~ Picture Study : Z is for Zig Zag ~
I’m pretty sure this was the girls favorite picture study this year from the Museum ABC’s book and nesting blocks

~ Z is for Zucchini ~

I actually can’t even remember how I made these “Zuccanoes,” but they were so yummy!   You can find lots of recipes online, but since I didn’t have all the ingredients for any one recipe I combined a few.   I’m going to have to make them again since everyone loved them.   Updated to add:  Forgot all about these!  Sure wish I would have saved (blogged!) the recipe so we could make them again.  ðŸ˜‰

~ Z is for Zamboni ~

I surprised my children with a copy of Z is for Zamboni.  They were SO excited!
Whew!  That wasn’t so hard!  Now I can move on to posting pictures of Suggles’ A Week without feeling behind!  ðŸ˜‰

    So sweet to see how much your kids have grown, lol!
    Your zucchanoes look yum…we've been making a gf pizza-option w/zucchini & regular pizza toppings at our house, too (very similar!).
    Looking forward to seeing your new A-week post 🙂 I think we'll be starting w/the letter A next week, to join along with you and the other families who are moseying down the Path this year. Lol, doesn't it seem even better the second time around? I know I sure am enjoying it as much as my children. 🙂
    Have a lovely weekend!

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.
