Want to take over?!

Hi gals!

So my schedule lately has gotten really crazy.  On top of that I am going to be out of town for the next 2 weeks and when I get back I will be starting to work every Wednesday to cover the maternity leave of one of the nurses I work with.  Needless to say, I won't be able to make it to our playgroup for the next little while!  I am looking for someone to take over and "be in charge".  Basically you would just be responsible for coming up with a location, posting it to the blog and then hopefully attending that playgroup. I am hoping to get someone who is reliable and excited about getting together with other moms.  Please email me if you are interested & I'll make sure you have "administrator" status on our blog. (I know this is an actual calling in several other Eugene wards, but since that calling doesn't exist in ours, we need someone to volunteer!!).  I'd be happy to take over again in a few months if needed.  In the meantime, I'll miss seeing you all on Wednesdays but would still love to do playdates if anyone's interested!!  Thanks everyone!

Summer is here!

Well at least school is officially out for the kiddos! :)  Because of that, I have made a few changes to the blog.  I've been approached by some women in the ward that have school-aged children and we would like to use this blog as a site where all moms can post activities for the summer that they'd like to include others in.  For example, Eugene has weekly free movie nights, discounted swim days, etc.  Because of that, I changed the title of the blog to "Mom & Me" instead of "Mom & Tot".  Also, I know there are women that are only free for playgroups on Fridays, so I've decided to change a few of our activity days to Friday to accommodate them as well.  I hope it isn't too confusing!!  Please check back to the blog frequently for any clarifications on playgroup days as well as locations.  You are also welcome to call, text or email me if you have any questions or concerns.  I have also decided, due to a few requests, to change our meeting time to 11:00.  If anyone has any serious objections to either the day or time changes, please let me know. With that said, I also thought I'd post the next two months' schedule in advance (I've been terrible at letting everyone know in time), so here it is!

Wednesday 6/15 - Candlelight Park (on Royal)
Friday 6/24 - Bethel Communtiy Park ("Sand Park")
Wednesday 6/29 - Skinner's Butte Park
Friday 7/8 - Bethel Community Park
Wednesday 7/13 - Candlelight Park
Wednesday 7/20 - Bethel Community Park
Friday 7/29 - Lone Pine Farms (wohoo for goat feeding - the kids love it!)

By popular demand, I have scheduled Bethel Community Park every other week (it has the largest playground & is where we usually get the best turnout).  I also tried to rotate close places (within walking distance) and ones we'd have to drive to, in order to accommodate those who don't have cars. If anyone knows of any other fun parks or meeting options, I am always open to suggestions and can definitely make changes as we go along - let me know!!

I also want to say thank you to everyone who supports our playgroup!  It has been a great way to stay in touch with women in our ward and I encourage everyone to try to come frequently.  The more women & kids we have, the more fun it is and the more we are able to strengthen our friendships and support each other.  I love you all and hope to visit with you soon. :)


(P.S. just so I don't feel totally guilty about it - I won't be able to make it tomorrow due to work (I know it's a terrible trend lately...this is my LAST Wednesday!!), but a few other women have agreed to be in charge.  Please still plan to go so they aren't lonely!)

We're going to do one more week at the Candlelight Park (by request from those within walking distance who don't have cars today)! :)  Unfortnately I have work AGAIN today (bummer), but Andrea Munro said she'll be there & be in charge so if you have any questions feel free to call her at (801) 419-2481. Thanks gals!  See you next week.

Hey guys! 

I am so sorry but I COMPLETELY forgot that today was Wednesday & that we have Mom & tot...and I'm at work!  Guess Memorial Day got me off by a day.  Anyway, I think it's sunny, so why don't we plan for Candlelight Park (dog park on Royal) at 10:30.  Unfortunately I won't be there :( but I hope you have a fabulous time!!

The rain returns...

Darn!  It's been so sunny and now the day we're going to get together, it starts to rain. Bummer!  Well, I think we better head back to the church (which is still lots of fun!).  We're excited to get out of the house, so we'll see you there at 10:30!

The sun is out today!! So while it may not be super warm, we are going to throw on our jackets and head to the park. We will be meeting at "Candlelight Park" (the dog park on Royal) at 10:30. See you there!

Now that the weather is warming up, we'd like to start spending most of our playgroups at different parks. However, since the weather is still frustratingly unpredictable, we know that's not always a possibility. So here's our compromise - we are going to post our location each Wednesday by 10:00. If it is sunny, we'll be outside; if not, we'll either head to the church or another fabulous indoor location! Please check this blog each week to find out where we'll be. If it's easier for anyone, I can also send out text message notifications to let everyone know our location. If you'd like to receive a reminder text, please either leave a comment with your phone number or call/text/email me and let me know! Thanks everyone, and we'll see you Wednesday! :)
