Wrapping up our week here we made our first attempt at melting beeswax and making candles
Made a pretty good first candle. My oldest is going to be making these for his friends for Christmas presents.
We also lit the first two candles of our salt dough advent spiral that one is also working out well. It is accompanied by the random acts of kindness for each day of advent the boys and I try to practice each day.
I myself am working on my handwork, trying to do it Russian style with a YouTube tutorial my mom send me. So far I have made a wash cloth, a scrubby and keep failing at a scarf…
Did turn this one into a bunny that we use for our counting, tossing it back and forth during circle time and counting to 10 in English and Russian.
For the rest of the time we explored nature on our hike before it started raining on us and finished up our J activities with jugs we painted.
We have two friends being ordained over the next two Sundays, one to deaconate and the other who is a 3rd year student here in seminary to the priesthood. Axios axios to both!
