Little Flowers :: Wrapping Up the Year

Little Flowers :: Wrapping Up the Year

My Trio and I had our last Little Flowers Girls’ Club meeting for Wreath 1 a week and a half ago. We moved through this first year at a very rapid speed, since we didn’t start until January but wanted to finish by the end of the school year. Next year will be much more normal, with only monthly meetings. Since I haven’t been able to keep up with posting each meeting, here is a brief look at the last…

Little Flowers :: Obedience

Little Flowers :: Obedience

Catching up on some Little Flowers Girls’ Club posts, here is a recap of our meeting on the virtue of obedience. {For this First Wreath, our group is meeting twice per month, because we didn’t start until January, and we want to finish by summer. Plus, we want to start Wreath II in September, and just have a normal “school-year” schedule. Since we meet so often, I can’t keep up with posting about our meetings, even though they are so…

(Here’s me with my 5 year old.) In addition to the official…

Little Flowers :: Hope

Little Flowers :: Hope

Hope must encircle and cling to your heart like the climbing ivy. —The Catholic Girl’s Guide— The Friday before our second Little Flowers meeting, I found myself in the ER with my baby. He was diagnosed with RSV at five weeks old. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to host, nor teach, our lesson on hope. So, I made various phone calls to share the sad news. This second meeting went on without my children. But two other girls…

Little Flowers :: Faith

Little Flowers :: Faith

It has been a few years since I first heard of the Little Flowers Girls Club. It was so long ago that my oldest daughter (now 8yo) was still too young to be part of it. But I remember thinking, “How beautiful! I can’t wait for my girls to be old enough to do something like that.” And since beginning this blog a little over two years ago, I have seen so many beautiful Little Flowers groups shared via this…
