So AR mamas... I saw a thread like this on the NJ board, where I'm living now (for the time being). In my heart, I'm still an AR and TX girl, and immediately I thought "I need a thread like this in my old neck of the woods!"

Wanna play along?

I often wonder if there are people here who I used to know. I wonder how many people, if any, I knew as a kid grew up to be a "crunchy mama" like me.

I lived in;
Pine Bluff, AR
North Little Rock, AR
and spent every summer in Mountain View, AR
moved to Arlington, TX

I went to;

Taylor Elementary
Indian Hills Elementary
Central Jr. High
Lakewood Jr. High
and would have gone to Northeast High

How about you? Have we met?

Hitting all the AR threads, so sorry if this is a cross-post. The Arkansas Breastfeeding Coalition needs your support! If you have not already done so, please visit the website and join this project. Things are starting to move very quickly, and we need your support!
www.arkansasbreastfeedingcoalition.org

At this time the Women's Caucus is considering sponsoring this legislation, the first of its kind in Arkansas. There are other representatives who have said they will co-sponsor as well. Sign up at the ABC site to stay informed on this project.

And please pass the word about the ABC to as many people in the state as possible. There is also a thread here about the ABC.

I'll play!

I was born in Little Rock (at St. Vincent )
Grew up in Ft. Smith---went k-8th grade at IC (changed to Trinity jr. high) Went to camp every summer at Camp Cahinnio in Booneville
moved to Atlanta, GA--then Jackson, MS--then Dallas, TX

>>I have a brother in Little Rock--he went to UA at Monticello, where he met his wife who is from Warren, I'll get back when I remember.
They lived in N. LR for many years--by the water park. My SIL is a hairstylist and worked at a salon in the strip near W. Markham (I think that's right...)where The Faded Rose and Tipton and Hurst are--there's been a ton of growth over that way! Now she is over by The Ranch off hwy 10 (is that Cantrell Rd?).

>>I have a sister in Rogers---she has lived in Bentonville and Springdale too. She works in Bentonville. She and sister #2 went to AR Tech in Russellville.

>> Sister #2's husband was born and raised in Texarkana. She went to law school at UA in Fayetville.

>>I have a cousin who grew up in Pine Bluff and Batesville...she lived in Whitehall for years. Maiden name is Waggoner...have to think a minute to remember her married name...Coleman!

Love the idea of this thread! Funny thing is...we may not know each other directly, but I bet we have at least one common link!

I grew up in Little Rock and East End, AR.

I went to several schools:

Little Rock Christian School
Victory Christian School
Fairview Baptist School
Professional Educator's Institute (PEI)
East End Elementary
Sheridan Junior High School
(Then I moved on to homeschooling)

After I was married I lived in Greers Ferry, AR for a while, but am now back in West Little Rock (Col. Glenn area).

I attended church for a couple of years in White Hall at Family Church, back when I was a teenager (now I'm the ripe old age of 24 ), and was big into Oneighty (the youth program). I still know a lot of people from that church/area.

I'm currently a SAHM, but both my hubby and sister work for Alltel downtown at the corporate office.

Oh and just thought I'd add that I'm a big fan of Birth Works here in Little Rock- Kim Jacob was my doula when I gave birth to my youngest 7 months ago. I love that girl. : I also took natural childbirth classes at BW.

This is a neat idea!

Hiker Girl, I might know you! If you are 24 and went to Sheridan Jr. High I bet we were there at the same time. Neat!
