the last round table
IN honor of Katherine Mooreâ€™s farewell visit to Westhaven there was to be a special meeting of the Girl Scouts of the Round Table in Memory Freanâ€™s House in the Woods.
After all, circumstances had been more powerful than Kara. The doctors had agreed that a sea voyage and a consultation with certain eminent surgeons in Europe would be helpful. So Kara had decided to accept the kindness from a stranger who might have played so different a r?le in the last twelve years of her life, but was now deeply anxious to make amends.
In any case Mr. Moore had intended going abroad for the summer with Lance McClain. He explained that he wanted Lanceâ€™s companionship, having developed a keen interest in him and wishing him to have the best possible musical education.
AN occasional early spring day was making its appearance in the Connecticut valley. Only a few faint spears of green showed on the long, pointed fingers of the willow trees, a bursting of the hardiest buds on the lilac bushes, while the pussy willow was enjoying its usual triumph, the first harbinger of the approaching season.
As a matter of fact, when the Girl Scouts and their Troop Captain set out on their afternoon hike, except to eager and trained eyes winter was still chiefly in evidence.
In out-of-the-way places there were thin layers of ice with the melted water showing beneath. The skies were gray, with rare streaks of blue, the atmosphere had the clear sharpness of recent frost, the wind blew with a definite chillness.
The group of twelve girls and their Captain were on their way to Beechwood Forest, where they had spent the previous summer in camping.
This past Tuesday, I had my last BBBS meeting until after break. When we meet we filled out paper work about ourselves, answering questions like what our favorite foods were, what we wanted to be when we were older, things like that. One question said, what makes you happy and Beyonce answered "olliia" There was another question that said if you had one wish what would it be, and Beyonce answered again with "olliia" I asked her what that word was and she said "Olivia! I spelled it wrong" It was the sweetest thing I have heard in a long time. It warmed my heart that on our 2nd week together she already liked me and looked forward to seeing me. After we learned a little more about one another we made crafts to take home and then we opened gifts that they all got (she got a Girl Scout Barbie Doll) and then we ate food! I learn more about her each time we meet, she is very comfortable with me which I love and I cannot wait to see what else I learn throughout the rest of the year. I am... (more)

"Greetings, O favored one, the Lord is with you!"
(Luke 1:28b). Read Luke 1:26-28.
One of the most coveted roles among the girls in our
Sunday school Christmas program was the Virgin
Mary. Her big moment was when she gently wrapped
a baby doll in cloths and laid him in the manger. But
another sought-after part was the angel Gabriel. Since
that required memorizing a larger part, it usually was
given to an older student.
The angel Gabriel had already brought some great
messages to Daniel and Zechariah, but nothing could
compare with the message God entrusts to him now.
He goes out from the presence of God to a city in the
northern region of Galilee called Nazareth. There he
appears to a virgin who is betrothed to a man named
Joseph. Her name is Mary. Gabriel greets her with
reassuring words, "Greetings, O favored one, the Lord
is with you!"
But what is so special about Mary? Why has God
chosen her for this singular honor above all... (more)
