As part of the church group the girls would be joining once they turned 12, the organization holds something called "New Beginnings" where they introduce the program to the girls, give them their literature and get to know the older girls who are already part of the program.
The Young Women's leader went all out (as always) for this night. Check out the cool banner she made, as well as all the invitations, programs, decorations and gifts for the girls (in the paint cans).
|These are the displays that depict each value they focus on in this program. This one is Knowledge.|
|She made one of those flowers in each of the Young Women's colors.|
|I think this one is Divine Nature|
|As part of the program, each mom sent a bunch of "Things to Know" about their daughter. This is Morgan, one of the older girls reading Xoe's out loud to everyone.|
|This Xanthe's teacher reading hers. I guess the girl who was in charge of Xanthe's wasn't there so she had to read from my phone. :)|
|A few of the girls in their Young Women's class. These are a great group of girls!|
|These are the girls who are Xanthe and Xoe's age going into the program during the year. On the left is Ashley who has the same birthday as X&X and is a very good friend, and the other girls is Haley, a good friend of the X&X too.|
