{pretty, happy, funny, real}

{pretty}

These photos are all from a friend's "Little House" themed birthday party. We don't have prairie clothes, but I'll have to make them one day. I thought Ellie looked lovely with her daisy crown, and writing in their learning room (more on that below).

{happy}


Dancing, picnicking, singing, crafting...this party had it all! Each child got a tin lunch pail filled with wholesome snacks wrapped in waxed paper like apples, tarts, and cornbread. And they also got their own cloth napkins which they washed on a washboard at the end of the party.

Steven Joseph and his little friend were having quite a fun time with the cake and ice cream. Aren't they precious?

{real}


Yes, this is really the learning room of my dear friend.

It's like a homeschooling dreamland.

Filled with every kind of Catholic/Charlotte Mason/Montessori/Waldorf type of craft, manipulative, art supply, or book you could imagine.

And even a fairy garden in the dining room.
Swoon.
So blessed to have such kind, creative Catholic homeschooling friends.
