Thankful Thursday ~ Our first Little Flowers

11:46 AM
What a joy to have a little girl.

I thought of myself as a boy-mommy, with my house full of men, love my 3 sons! But God has gifted me with a daughter to fulfill my dreams and share girly things.

Last week was the first time my daughter and I attended a Little Flowers girls' club among our Catholic homeschooling friends. "Little Flowers Girls' Club® is a Catholic program for girls ages 5 and up based on learning Catholic virtues through the lives of Catholic saints, Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. "

It began with an adorable, Saint Valentine's tea party for the girls.

Napkins on their laps... in their pretty dresses.

Our amazing hostess set a beautiful table and read to the little ladies. They listened quietly to a story about St. Valentine, a book about Corinthians scripture, LOVE IS... and discussed what the virtue of Charity looks like.

Afterwards, the table was cleared for crafts, Valentine cards were made for their priests. Just a charming day!

St. Therese, shower us with your prayers that we may recieve the graces we need.

I am praying for a healthy baby, but secretly would be pleased to have a little girl this time. That party looked lovely!

What a special activity for you and your daughter to do together! I have heard so much about Little Flowers; I have to look into it for my daughters.

That looks like such a lovely idea! I teach boys and girls but in separate classes - so an all girls and an all boys class- of course I love both but there is something wonderful about little girls!

Oh so fun! What a wonderful time for the girls at a special Little Flower day. Enjoy these moments with your daughter, so special. I love your new banner too, well at least it's the first time I've been able to "see" it since being off and online again. Hugs!
