This morning I joined a MOPS group! I had always heard great things but living in the boondocks since we have had kiddos has hindered my involvement in such activities. Well, now that I drive preschool carpool once a week it is possible! Hooray! Childcare is provided so Owen got to play with some other little friends. At the completion of the meeting I found him rolling down the hall in a six passenger buggy :)
This year the theme is 'Momology' and the main scripture we are focusing on is "Even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast." Psalms 139:10. We watched a brief intro video which was a refreshing look at the common challenges of motherhood and keeping the Christian faith. The Lord is constantly with me. During 3 year old temper tantrums and sassy remarks....He is there. During countless sleepless nights over the past eleven months....He has been there. When the kids are both whining and causing a scene while grocery shopping...He is there!
This morning we made the cutest craft!! It was my first attempt at modge podge and we created block photo frames. Our scripture is also attached so that we are constantly reminded of God's goodness:
Another wonderful thing about MOPS is that they sent us each home with dinner! They gave us the ingredients to make taco soup! Yum :)I look forward to next month's meeting. I am so thankful to have found such a wonderful group of fellow Godly mamas....
