Liberty Girls Retreat

We attended the Liberty Girls Retreat this year. It was so much fun! Since Jayda is 6 now, she got to participate with Olivia and the other girls from her Liberty Girls group. The theme was based on the books about Josefina, from old New Mexico. The girls learned lots of fun skills and crafts. They made cute hair flowers out of coffee filters and markers, they learned how to spin on a hand spinner, they learned how to grind corn and make tortillas, played games, learned how to weave, and learned the Mexican Hat Dance.

This woman was so fun, she smiled the whole time, which made the kids all smile, and she was an excellent teacher. She even brought brightly colored skirts for every girl to wear while they danced. My girls said that was their favorite part of the whole day.

They got to bring home so many fun things, they learned a lot and had a great time! Can't wait for next year!
