We have had a busy October! Our second October meeting was a fun one with a get-to-know-you game and a take home craft. The craft was a little lamb made out of a wash cloth to help tell the story of Jesus as the Lamb of God. There was also a bunch of time spent talking about the craft fair.
We also had two weeks of play dates. On the 4th Tuesday, we went to the Galloping Grace Youth Ranch Pumpkin Patch. This is an awesome, free pumpkin patch located at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho. They sell pumpkins and other items to raise money for their agricultural programs for kids in the ABQ area. They also have a Christmas Corral (with Christmas trees) that we will probably visit in December.
Then for the 5th Tuesday, we had small group playdates. These were at a local park, the zoo, and botanical gardens. They were a great time to get to chat with more of the moms while the kids had a blast.
And now we are busy with the craft fair, our annual fundraiser. Moms are busy baking items of the bake sale. This morning many of us were busy setting up everything up (or watching the kids for the other moms working hard). And then tomorrow we will be there all day selling items and supporting the crafts.
