Dance Lessons?

Hey Ladies,
I have had some women inquire about dance lessons for their young girls. Having had a boy first we havn't dealt with dance yet so I am asking you what kind of experiences you have had with dance class and who you would recommend for lessons. I remember hearing about a Debbie Jones but can't seem to find any information on her. I also have heard of Gift of Dance and Dancing for Joy but I don't know any details. Will you comment if you have experience!
Hope you are all enjoying the beautiful sunshine!

Peanut Butter Balls

For those of you who didn't make it to our last meeting of the year I wanted to share the Peanut Butter Ball recipe.
These were really easy to make and are a great snack to have on hand. My husband took some in his lunch Wednesday and he couldn't even finish the ones he took. He described them as, "dense but satisfying."

Combine in food processor:
1 cup dried milk (someone also said they had a milk allergy so they use rice krispies and it works as a great sub)
1 cup wheat germ or bran
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey

pulse for a few seconds and roll into balls.

Welcome to Birchwood MOPS!
We are really excited to have a blog up and running just in time for summer! As our group will not be meeting again until after summer vacation we feel the blog will be a good way to let each other know about fun events, or family activities to do with your kids on those warm summer days! We will try and post some fun recipes, bargain ideas, and local events going on as they come up.
