MOPS Playdate

Many moms and kids joined us yesterday for our February playdate. It was nice to finally get out of the house after all the snow. The moms enjoyed a little adult (as in, not 3 year old) conversation while the children played with toys and each other. We ended the morning with a little marble painting. Thanks for coming ladies!

Takin' Care of Business

Well, the snow has started falling and MCPS is out for the rest of the week. So, we won't be meeting tomorrow morning. But, we do need to take care of a little business. We will be going to the St. Patty's Day Walk at Brookside Gardens on Wed., March 17th. But, we need to reserve space on Feb, 16th. (Which, as you can figure out, is before our next meeting.) So, if you are planning on going, then please leave a comment including your name and the number of participating children you will be bringing. It will be $3/child for a craft and snack. Please don't RSVP unless you are definitely planning on coming. We will collect money at our next meeting on Feb. 24th.

In the meantime, get out and enjoy the snow with the kiddos. We would love to see what you are doing with your time in all these snow storms, whether inside or out. Take lots of pictures and send one or two to derwoodmops@gmail.com with the subject "snow picture" and we will add them in another post. We can't wait to see what everyone is doing!

We hope you are enjoying the 2010 Snowmageddon. But, if you aren't, don't worry, we are getting more snow on Tuesday night. So, how will you know if we are meeting or not? Well, we will let you know right here on the blog. We will be making our decision based on MCPS. If MCPS is closed or even has a delayed opening, we will sadly, not be meeting. And we will meet again on Feb. 24th. If you want a chance to get together before then, there is also a playdate on Feb. 17th at Derwood Bible Church. In the meantime, go build some cool snowmen and igloos.
