We were able to attend the May Crowning at church last Saturday. The kids and I went to Kroger and I let them pick out flowers for Mary and they were very excited to process up to the altar and present them to her. Mary and Johanna sang Immaculate Mary and Hail Holy Queen together and it was beautiful.
While the big kids are busy with Pickwick and Catholic Boys club, I usually try to have a craft for the 3 little girls in our group. Since May is the month dedicated to Mary, we made this precious craft that I found on (surprise, surprise) Catholic Icing The little girls dearly love these crafts and it is such a blessing to have this time with them. They used their foot for Mary's blue dress and the palm of their hand and part of their fingers for her crown. The twelve stars are symbolic of the twelve apostles.
