We did it!

Our Packet After months of preparing and thinking and trying not to worry, Jessica and I did it!!! We spoke at my church’s Mom’s group on spending quality time with your children! By no means are we experts, {and by NO means do I enjoy getting up in front of big groups of people to speak} but we had a great time compiling all of our ideas and sharing them with the young mommies. And, believe it or not, it was FUN! I am so thankful that God gave me the opportunity…and led me to Jessica so that I didn’t have to do it alone! Table1 The mommies made a “fun lunch” for their kids (pretending it was “Bug Day”)…and they also got to make their own “Rainy Day Basket”…full of TONS of fun and easy ideas of things to do with your kids during those “rainy day moments!” It’s always fun to go home with STUFF!!!...and they loved it!

I wish you could have seen how hilarious it was for us to try to get this picture! Everyone had left, and since we both forgot our cameras, we tried again and again to hold out Jessica’s iPhone to get a decent shot! This was the best one! :) Jess & MeThank you, Sweet Jessica, for standing beside me as we taught these Mommies. I can’t imagine doing it without you…and the fact that you have inspired me to be a better Mom made me so very honored to have you there! I look forward to “stealing” your ideas in the future…and sharing our lives as we raise our sweet little ones!!!

I would also love the information from y'all's session. I seriously considered skipping work to come because I'll be home all summer with Noah and want to make it worthwhile for him.

So neat! Would love a copy of the info too. I love your ideas and from The Rowe Crew but they went private before I could email her and get on "The" list. ;( Thanks for sharing your creativity! It is a blessing!

Hello Britney,
Would it be possible to send me an attachment of the booklet you two passed out or maybe just highlight a few key points.
