My friend Marci is hosting a weekly get together at her home, throughout the summer, called:
Summer with the SaintsEach week she is featuring a different Saint with crafts, coloring, snacking and just plain old FUN! Today was the first one we were able to attend, and we all had a WONDERFUL time. It is such a great way to stay connected with friends and learn about the Saints at the same time.
In honor of yesterday's feast, todays featured Saint was Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
Marci had so much fun stuff planned. The children were able to color pictures of Our Lady and St. Simon Stock, make holy cards of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, eat "Carmel" Corn, and even assemble new scapulars!
(You can print this beautiful prayer card, along with many others, here.)
There were 4 families: Marci's family, my family, my good friend Trina (who is in town for the month!) and her family, and a childhood friend of mine and Trina's, Maria, and her 3 daughters, who Marci was kind enough to include. Even though there was only us 4 families, we had a total of 19 children!!! Gotta love it!!!
It has been so nice to be able to spend time a little time with my darling Goddaughter, and for Twinkle Toes to be able to spend time with her Godmother, Trina!

Thank you Marci for having us! We are looking forward to next week!
