This past weekend our church had a Mother / Daughter event for 4th & 5th grade girls. The purpose was to teach them about being God's princesses.
We started Friday night with a mexican meal that was DELISH! Thanks to the church family that made all that for us.
We had a couple of devotions from Proverbs.
A beautiful woman who lacks discretion is like a gold ring in a pigs snout. Proverbs 11:22
They gave us a story that we read. It really just said that you can dress a pig in pink, dress it up and it is still a pig.
They gave us time to discuss this with our daughters. I really enjoyed this time with Coco.
We then had a fashion show with each girl wearing a inappropriate out and appropriate outfit that we all discussed. Loved this too.
At the end of the evening. All the mothers presented their daughter with a shiny new Tiara. When I went to put it on Coco she kind of leaned back and said "what are you doing with that thing"! HA
That is my girl! She was not lovin the tiara business! She is SO not that kind of girl. At least that day.
We were supposed to go back on Saturday for a couple of sessions on money and skincare, do our nails and then end up at the Crumpet Tea Room. WELL, Saturday morning was also the FIRST softball practice of the season. Coco was adamant that she did not want to do the PRINCESS thing!
I was disappointed but I have to realize that is just not her thing right now. I am not giving up on her because I love bible studies and womens retreats. As she gets older I will be praying for her to be open to these things so that we can do them together.
For now at this time in our life I will love her just as she is. In her jerseys, jeans and tshirts!
I had a cute photo of her after going to the batting cages today but blogger is not letting me upload.
