We DID start our meeting off with our normal virtue study. This week's topic was about Modesty in Dress. They found it a very interesting subject to discuss, and were very creative in thinking up ways to be "in style," without falling into the trap of dressing inappropriately.
The book "Beautiful Girlhood" by M. Hale, lead us in our discussion. We read aloud from the chapter on modesty, and went from there. The girls found it fascinating that a book written so long ago, still addresses many of the same issues facing girls today.
Along with our Virtue study and tea, we also spent sometime making biscuits, Apple butter, and strawberry-cranberry Jam. It was a fantastic treat... and we hope to make more jam in the near future. If you would like to see the recipe that we used for our Jam and apple butter, please see the Pickwick link at the top of my home page. I will posting it there shortly
"Little Sparty" is such a boy! He decided that he had to be a saint that carried a sword. His Choice for this year was St. George. We were fortunate to have the Story book of St. George and the Dragon, So "Little Sparty" was in 7th Heaven learning more about his chosen Saint.
"A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it
down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by
acting."- Henry David Thoreau.
