The Kids I Keep

One of the things I do during the month is to take care of some kids who don't live with me!

The Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) program at my church is one of the things that helped me get established after I moved to Virginia, and one of the things that kept me going as a young mom. To be able to give something back to other young moms going through similar circumstances--like watching their children for a few hours--is one of the small things I can do to make something of today.

Here's a short video I made with the kids and some of their fellow playground mates.

Moms, thank you for the privilege--they're great kids!

I assume you did this on CJ's video software?!? It is great! I love how the music "matches up" to the pictures! You must let us play this at the brunch, please.

Hope you don't mind me peaking before you had your "grand opening." I couldn't wait.

Congrats on your first blog. Love it!

Sue, You did a GREAT job on the video. I loved it! Rachel enjoyed watching it too. She is really going to miss you next year. She may opt to come see Ms. Sue rather than go to school!!
Thanks for all you do!

I absolutely LOVED it! It actually brought tears to my eyes, they look so happy! Can't wait to show them tomorrow! They will miss you Ms. Sue, and so will I :-) Thank you so much for EVERYTHING!

This is so wonderful! Thanks for brightening my day! I think I'll watch it again tomorrow! You've captured the wonderfulness of MOPS!(for the volunteers!). What a blessing!
