Parenting is a lot of work and doing it with others always makes it more enjoyable. This is a forum to meet families close by which means less time in the car and more time for playing! Most activities are free or nearly free, (we all could save some change right now). There is a lot of potential with this group- back yard BBQ's, age-specific play groups, night time walks, sitter swapping for one another (date nights!!), or just a purpose to drag yourself out of the house every once in a while for all of you home bodies. Long term--we can unite and make our neighborhood and schools better places for our kids and feel comfortable letting them run down the street to their friend's house (remember that??). We can make lasting relationships for those who are committed to live here in the long haul. Enough of my soap box and let's just play for now!
