We're Off to See the Wizard

No Menu Monday.

No grocery shopping.

No plan.

Seriously.

Why? you ask.

Because I have been working on my personal progress -- and was able to finish my second to last value project.

Mothers are now encouraged to get their medallions with their daughters and Mikayla and I have been working on it together.

In fact, as part of our personal progress project, Mikayla and I (along with Emma) planned, prepared and presented the Young Woman's New Beginnings program.

We made and sent out invitations.



We made decorations.


We made food:


We made little favors for the incoming beehives:


And for the young women who had moved in during this last year:


And made/collected costumes (with a lot of gratitude that the middle school had recently done the wizard of oz):

Flying monkeys and talking trees.


Dorothy:

Auntie Em:

The Cowardly Lion:


The Tin Woman:


The Wicked Witch of the West:

The Scarecrow:


The Lollipop Gang:


The Lollipop Gang Leader, Glinda, and a Citizen of Oz.


We started in Munchkinland and then sent the girls down the yellow brick road to find Oz.

Along the way, they met lots of fun characters who told them about each of the young women's values.

I hope it was fun for the girls.

I know it was for Mikayla, Emma, and I. And I'm glad that we could work on this together!

And...thank goodness for the Colonel...who provided dinner tonight.
