"Strawberry Fields Forever"
Our group had a blast on Saturday when several of us gathered to pick strawberries at a local farm, Pleasant Fields, in Hanover. The crop is just starting to come in, and the kids loved eating fresh from the vine and helping drop them in the buckets. The weather was perfect and some of the members left with several bags full of fresh, gorgeous strawberries. Afterwards, some of us went to play at a local coffee shop with a play area, where the kids continued to have fun inside playing on all of the equipment!
Monday morning we had our monthly weekday meeting, which was wonderful! We loved meeting some new families and catching up with some old friends! The kids had a lot of fun playing and the adults had fun socializing. We've also welcomed several new VBEs (Volunteer Babywearing Educators- they must pass a written assessment and an in-person skills assessment through Babywearing International) to our group this month, so we're able to help more families faster! Some of those are in the Stafford area, so we will now be hosting more regular meetings in that area and are working to build a library. If you live in the Fredericksburg-Woodbridge areas of 95, let us know when and where you would like to start seeing meetings. if you would like to donate a carrier to either library, ask us about getting a receipt for tax purposes! We are so excited to be branching out to greater serve the Central VA area!
As far as upcoming events, we have a meeting on Saturday, May 25th, and we are working on a Thirty-One Party as a group fundraiser potentionally on the 15th of June. We hope to see you at one of those, and for more event information please join us on facebook or follow us on twitter at @BWIofCentralVA!
