We hope you can join us next month for another fun craft with Jeanne Schaefer on May 17th! you can help with the craft or hold babies (or a little of both!), and if you also speak spanish, that is an added bonus because we always need an interpreter!
April’s activity at Casa De Milagros was led by “Chicks” Colleen Douglas and her daughter Katherine. They brought wooden crosses of all sizes for the girls to paint and stack together for a three dimensional look. These Casa de Milagros girls absolutely love craft time, and they are so creative and expressive. I always love to see what they come up with each month. The crosses with all of their pastel pinks, purples, and yellows and the bright oranges, greens, and reds reminded me of the spanish term “De Colores” (the colors). These colors bring forth a bright, warm, sunny feeling as we realize that we are loved by God unconditionally. It is like the incredible experience of a rainbow!
As always, our leaders could not do what they do without help from some trusty sidekicks. Anne Gabriel and her daughter, Alexandria were a huge help to Colleen. The moms worked with the girls and their cross craft while the daughters and several other wonderfully dependable “Chicks” held babies and/or chased toddlers on the playground.
We had a fun treat with the new arrival of a two week old baby boy. Needless to say, he was very popular!
After brownies and lemonade, it was time to wrap it up until next month.
