I'm game for a weekend gathering as well. That's when they're open for tree fruit picking.

Please feel welcome. I think most of us are meeting for the first time, too!

Thanks, guys. I know i shouldn't feel weird, but i have a hard time relaxing and tend to just hang back and feel isolated Maybe tomorrow is a good opportunity for me to work on that, heh. Anyway, we'll see how the morning goes... The heat is making my kids a bit irritable, lol. But hopefully we'll be there! I have a 21 month old boy and a 3 year old girl. I'm the giant pregnant lady!

Oh hey. Random thought. Since I don't go around introducing myself as earthmama369, I'll introduce myself here the "right" way. I'm Sarah, and my kiddos are Qualia and Sebastian. (Don't worry, there won't be a quiz tomorrow!)

Sweet.

Well, we're REALLY easy to identify now. We read Arthur and the Chicken Pox last night. Guess what Qualia did with a pink marker ALL over herself this morning before I got up?

Thanks to everyone that made it out! Phhewwwww it was a hot one today!

I'm sorry I had to leave earlier than planned.. little Jack man passed out about a mile down the road. I hope everyone got a good amount of berries to take home & make something yummy with!

I didn't end up making it cuz it was just one of those mornings. Every time we worked through one meltdown, another one came. LoL. So is anyone still considering meeting there on a weekend?

We're actually seriously considering homeschooling (kids are only 2 and 3 now), so i'd love to actually talk to some homeschooling parents about it.

I'm going to start a spin-off thread, but I wanted to post here, too. I'd love to do another trip to Belltown in early September, this time on a weekend so that working parents can make it (and so we can pick tree fruits, too!).
