January 24Another aspect of our busy "school" year is MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers). This was my first year to join this organization. Since I have social anxiety disorder (well, sort of, anyway), this isn't an obvious choice for me. I do it for the kids, though. It's like going to a free school twice a month. They get to play with kids their ages and take part in a Bible story and craft, etc. (think: Sunday School). The Mom part of the program is highly organized and efficient. There is always a speaker (topics might range from aromatherapy to science activity ideas for kids to spiritual training), a Mom craft, small discussion group time (oh, how I loooove that part :0), and a devotion from a Mentor Mom (and breakfast, too, if free food is your thing). Sound fun? If you have a baby, toddler, or preschooler and a MOPS in your area, I recommend it.
