With great joy, let me introduce you to two little nuns and the little girls who made them. The nuns began life on a summer day, on the carpet with markers, colored pencils, and two fascinating copies of the Periodic Table of Elements.
This is Big Sister and Nun Anna.
And here is Little Sister holding the nun she made, Sister Mary.
Big Sister built a church for the nuns, so they would feel at home, and Little Sister found icons of the Holy Apostles and Saints Cosmas and Damian to put inside it. Here are Sister Mary and Nun Anna on their way to pray.
Sister Mary and Nun Anna spent a wonderful day with Big and Little Sister. They ate spaghetti, and it is very likely they also ate their vegetables. Nuns do eat vegetables.
Sister Mary and Nun Anna took the girls on a walk by the corn fields. The sunset was beautiful, and the dandelions were fluffy.
Before bedtime, they visited the bee garden. Nuns like bees and gardens, and you will often find both at a monastery.
There was just time for a quick ride down the slide and a good-night pat for the cat.
Thank you, Big and Little Sister, for making and sharing Sister Mary and Nun Anna! This will remain one of my favorite things that happened during my time on this planet.
If you would like to make your own little nun and share her adventures, you can find the directions HERE.
