First of all- welcome to all the new members! It's pretty awesome to see our facebook page exploding. Clearly a babywearing group was needed in the Richmond area!
Secondly.. for those of you not on facebook, or who just need to see it somewhere other than on your phone (you laugh but you know I'm right!), we have a meeting a week and half from today on August 27th from 10-12 at Westhampton UMC. See the fb page for more information, or watch for directions closer to the meeting. The September meeting has already been set up as well, for Sept 24th at Maymont Park from 10-12. If you would like to host a meeting, a playdate, or just want to reach out for extra guidance, don't hesitate! Every time we see each other does not have to have a teaching period, but we will have one at least once a month. There are so many people bringing so many different strengths to this group and it is amazing to watch everyone helping each other out, but sometimes it's just nice to spend time with like-minded families!
A few of our members (and of course our fearless leader) have taken the next step to become Volunteer Babywearing Educators (VBE's) through BabyWearing International (BWI) so that they can help out with leading the meetings, or to start weekday meetings to help accommodate all the different schedules. If you are interested in becoming a VBE, check out the BWI blog's post, "What's a VBE?" for more information.
Until next time, enjoy your last few weeks of summer and we hope to see you next weekend!
