New Year, 2014-2015

MOTs Moms!

Welcome to the new school year and new MOTs year.  We hope and pray that this new school year has started out well, and for those who have children in school we pray that this year is one of learning, new friendships, and fun for your children.

We have an exciting year ahead of us in MOTs, and we are so looking forward to sharing it with you! Our first meeting is Thursday, September 11 at 9:30.  We have changed from Wednesdays to Thursdays, but we are still meeting at the same time and place, 9:30-11:30 in the Cafe at Grandview Nazarene.  The church has expanded their preschool days, so there will be extra moms and kids milling around.  :)

We are also trying a new set-up this year.  In an effort to deepen relationships between moms, we will be playing get to know you activities. Expect some tasty M&Ms and some fun door prizes.  We also will be having one speaker a month, while the other meeting each will be devoted to discussing what we learned the previous meeting, and just more getting to know each other time.  We really want to deepen and enrich all of our friendships.  Because, lets be honest, being a mom is hard!

We look forward to seeing you all.


As a side note, I have never done a blog before, and feel much more adept at Facebook.  Please like us (Moms of Tots) on Facebook to get current info!

MOTS - March 12th Mom's Night Out - Home Businesses

Hi Ladies!
Shari Ammerman is a pilates instructor in Prosser and a neat mom of four kids, high school age and older.  She will be joining us this Wednesday, March 12th to teach us some basic pilates.  We will also have a lot of visiting time!  Please dress in comfortable clothes and bring a yoga mat if you have one. She will bring some as well.  See you Wednesday!   

Also!  We have planed a fun Mom's Night Out event for Monday, March 17th from 6:30pm - 9:30pm (come anytime) at Clydine Norell's house.  She is Mandy Hoffard and Shelley Dixon's friend who offered her beautiful house for this Mom's Night Out.  Her address is 12823 Paige Lane, Prosser.  Paige Lane is almost at the very end of North River Road.  For the Mom's Night Out, we will have some of our MOTS moms who have at-home businesses sharing with us about their products.  They will be set up and we all have the chance to visit with them (and each other) and learn about some great products.  There will be refreshments.  This is a great opportunity to spend an evening without our sweet kiddos, learning and visiting.  Some of the businesses that will be there are:

- Usborne Books
- Mary Kay
- Norwex
- Origami Owl
- DoTerra Oils
- Paparazzi Jewelry
 and More!

 Please invite any other moms you know who could benefit from a night out.  Maybe moms who work during the day and can't come to MOTS but would be able to come to an evening event?  

Thanks Ladies!
