Little Flowers

Yesterday we had our first Little Flowers meeting. The boys who are in our homeschool group go with their dad’s to Conquest. Our girls were feeling a little left out. We came to the decision that a Little Flowers group would be a great idea.

The mom who has the Little Flower craft book could not make it to the first meeting, so we gave the girls creative freedom with the craft supplies and us moms sat back, talked and enjoyed our chips and salsa.

We had mom time while the kids got crafty, ate cupcakes and played. We will be doing a more formal Little Flower group, but it was nice to just have everyone together too.

Before I began homeschooling I was worried about my children having friends, being alone, and socialization. Now that I am homeschooling I have to laugh at myself when I think back on those thoughts. My kids have more friends now then they ever did in traditional school. And these friends are actually apart of their home life.

Another plus is that the mother’s of these friends have become my close friends. I couldn’t be happier with how everything is working out for my kids, and for myself. It is wonderful how God brings people together.

Looks like it was super fun! Our Little Flowers group that is run through our homeschool group is full. I'm bummed. There is some talk about starting a second group though.
