Our first meeting of the 2011-2012 was so much fun! It was wonderful to see all the beautiful faces back for another year with Christ, and we were so pleased to welcome eight new beauties!
This meeting focused on St. Catherine of Siena and the virtue of faith. We colored a picture of St. Catherine from Charlotte's blog. We also began what will be a holy card collection to add to our binders (along with all our new coloring pages this year). The holy card had our original image of St. Catherine on the front...
and her simple prayer on the back:
take me from myself
give me to
Then we really had some fun!
The girls each brought a pair of flip flops to the meeting (or Crocs, as the case was with one of our little ladies who does not like the feel of flip flops between her toes!). We decorated the flip flops with all the glitz and glam that we could get to stick to them, adding the special touch of a cross to the sole, so we can...
"Stand Firm in Faith"
One of the girls even pointed out the connection between having the cross on our sole and our soul. Wow!
The girls had a blast with the decorating...
although the tying was a challenge!
The finished products were delightful.
And comfortable, too!
But the best part was that we have been blessed again with the kitchen creations of Mrs. A! She wowed us with flip flop cookies and the girls were thrilled.
Which color goes best with my outfit?
Do we get two since we have two feet?
What a great way to end the first meeting of the year.
It gives new meaning to "putting your foot in your mouth"!
Keep planting seeds...
