Tea Party

Lori led our meeting tonight where we learned about hosting a proper tea party.  The table was beautifully set when we all arrived with all sorts of scrumptious looking treats to tempt us all.

There were place cards laid out for each girl as well as a beautiful ornament that they will be able to keep to remember this special time in their lives.
The girls enjoyed their tea party, sampling all the different food and chatting. 
Giving thanks.

While the girls ate and chatted, the moms were busy having their own tea party. :)

A little too much of a good thing! :)
After the girls ate and drank their tea, Lori had a game prepared for the girls to get to know each other better.

Friends. :)
The girls all had a wonderful time.  Thank you Lori and Alexandra for hosting this month and teaching us a little about tea parties! :)

Our meeting tonight was on teaching.  The girls came prepared to tell the group their favorite verse and why as well as their favorite Proverb with a visual to explain the Proverb. 
Terri led our meeting tonight and opened with our prayer, verse, goal and purpose.  Then she read some more from our book on Patience (is everyone practicing what we’re learning? :) ).
Once the opening was over the girls began their presentations.  I loved seeing their creativity.

After the verse and Proverb demonstrations, the girls were divided into two groups to learn and act out two parables.
