While talking to Paula one day about this, she suggested I join MOPS. I had heard of it, but never been part of one or looked into it. I looked into it and decided it might be just what I need. I am so excited, tomorrow is my first day going to the Yukon MOPS and I get to meet people in the area! And do a craft! And socialize! It's like preschool for mommies!!! :-)
My kids, on the other hand, have all made friends at church. Brittany and Emily go every Wednesday night to youth group and Konnect. They love it and it is great to see them making new friends in the area.
As little luck as I have had in the socialization area, we have had a wonderful time getting to know the area. I love this area. Not necessarily Yukon, but Oklahoma City area in general. We have discovered and explored more here than we may ever have in Tulsa. We have two nearby lakes, several nearby parks, the Will Rogers park in OKC that is a GREAT place for pictures, we've been to Norman for the Weather Festival, a great pumpkin patch in Piedmont, Pops gas station/restaurant, a great BBQ place in Norman, explored Bricktown, geocaching in several areas that we normally wouldn't have gone, climbing around a tank in Mustang, to the Czech festival here in Yukon, we belong to THREE nearby libraries, and of, course, a federal prison. (we don't belong to the federal prison, just to clarify that)
Anyway, I have a huge amount of pics that I haven't uploaded as I haven't had time to blog lately. I am going to take a moment to post just a few of them now.....
