Every few months I like to do a little "update" on Where we are at with The Mother's Nest,
what you have to look forward to.. and how you can help!
We are continuing our Construction/ Renovation of our building at 752 Canton Rd.
... Also we have a building (I still cannot believe it at times)
Demo is finished. Painting is happening on the floor we aren't constructing.
Windows are ordered.
Carpet is being quoted.
Things are starting to be "put back together" so that we can get walls.
Exciting stuff! Thank you to ALL who have donated so much time & hard work into our building!
We continue to have work days every Saturday... they are fun.. and a great time to catch the vision, put your hands to work.. and catch the fever for The Mother's Nest! If you are interested in coming to these work days, or providing lunch at one of them.. contact us here, or stay tuned for our facebook events we post weekly!
We continue to run programs out of our homes.. until we are able to move into the building.
This is fun, messy, and just a unique aspect that I love about the nest.
We look forward to running Becoming "Mom" (for our preggos through 1 year post partum) the second Wednesday of each month.
Our Moms Group #totsnup Every other Monday (for mommas of 1+ older kiddos)
Our Play Groups-- every Wednesday for all mommas of all life stages
WHAT'S TO COME:
