Once again, since the weather was gorgeous, I hosted the meeting at my home in the afternoon, giving the girls an opportunity to have some play time in addition to our meeting.
As usual we began our meeting with the prayer to St. Therese and the Acts of Faith, Hope, and Love. We then continued with a review of the virtue and saint we learned about at our last meeting.
I printed out Charlotte's St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Coloring Page to color, and then be added to the girl's notebooks.
Next I introduced the virtue we will be working on, Industry, and read a short biography of the saint for this month, St. Frances Xavier Cabrini.
Following the lesson the girls began making their notebook pages. I included the memory verse and for Industry, a short quote, and the prayer to St. Frances. Here are the links to Daffodil and the image of St. Frances that I choose, and my sample page: (You can download my document here: Text & Mother Cabrini.)
*YES!! I spelled "Frances" incorrectly, and didn't notice until after the meeting... Oops!
The girls have gotten so industrious at putting their pages together, and they were done in no time!
Snack time was next. Dee Dee had snacks for this meeting, and she did a wonderful job! She made the cutest Daffodil Cupcakes using Wilton Flower Silicone Fun Cups and Charlotte's Daffodil Cake recipe. The girls loved them!
