What the heck is HBB?  HBB stands for Home-Based Business.  Each year Holy Spirit MOPS hosts an HBB Showcase.  This year we are adding “Sponsors” to the mix because so many types of businesses have decided to support us.  Thursday, November 1st, we will have our 2012 Home-Based Business and Sponsor Showcase.  Our moms (and you) have the opportunity to get some early holiday shopping out of the way and meet our supporters at the same time.  Brunch will be provided by Panera Bread (one of our fundraising partners) and Panera gift certificates will be available for purchase to add to your loved one’s stocking (proceeds benefit our group).

Our HBB and Sponsor Showcase is during our normal meeting time (9:30am-11:30am) and MOPPETS childcare is provided like any other MOPS meeting.  Our annual Showcase not only gives us the chance to start holiday shopping, but strengthens our relationships within the community.  Our Sponsors recognize the importance of motherhood… the examples we set as mothers, the nurturing we give to our children and the need for encouragement and support along the way.

Hope to see you there!

Yes, yes, yes!  You can still join our group.  There is a lot going on this month and the first week may prove to be the busiest.  School field trips have begun, we’ve had two MOPS play dates so far, our meeting is on Thursday and the Ronald McDonald House Service Project is Friday night.  Add in all the other stuff like Dr. Appointments, waiting on the plumber and whoa! Sometimes it feels good to be busy, but I’ve noticed I’m still getting used to it.  How do I know?  Maybe you’ve experienced this too.  Patience (a lack of).  The patience I have for my four year-old isn’t quite as great when our schedule is packed.  It’s something to work on and teach simultaneously.  How many of us are challenged with teaching our children something we may not have completely mastered?  Hey… that sounds like a late October discussion topic 😉

On a completely different note, we are finishing up our first fundraiser only $40 away from our goal!  Of course, being soooo close is hard.  Only FORTY DOLLARS to go.  Our goal was $500 and for having a fundraiser right off the bat, our group did GREAT!  We’d like to send out a sincere THANK YOU to all who participated.

If you are joining us for the first time on Thursday, our meeting is at Holy Spirit Parish (9:30am).  Please email us to let us know if you plan to have children attend our childcare program (MOPPETS).  See you soon!

Fall Semester in Full Swing :)

Our first two meetings of the year have come and gone, but if you’re interested in joining our group, it’s not too late! Email holyspiritmops@gmail.com or surf this site for details. Our October Calendar and Newsletter are almost ready to publish and the weather is beautiful. Bring on those zoo & park play dates!!!

If you weren’t able to make the last meeting, we still have plaques available to take home. They are painted and ready for your picture with a little Modge Podge. We have some creative moms this year… all the plaques turned out great :):)

If you or a neighbor are considering seeding your yard(s), there is still time to get your seed from Jeff Stoecklein, who is donating the profits to MOPS (816-366-0498). Yay! Or, if you’re getting ready to plant some Flower Bulbs, visit Flowerpowerfundraising.com and after you click on the order tab, it will ask you to search for and select your group. Select Holy Spirit MOPS and we will receive 50% of the profits!

We are looking forward to our next meeting and hope you are having a wonderful fall.
