Arighty, we'll be coming up to Anchorage on April 14-15 or 16.

The current plan (subject to some modification of course) is to come up on Thursday and go to the Imaginarium at 3 with the free afternoon thing they have.

The next morning my DH will have his conference, and one of my kids has a medical appointment, but I anticipate being ready to play by 11ish. Our thought was to go up to the little museum in Mt View at that point, but we can do a lunchtime meetup/play date beforehand. Perhaps everyone bring sack lunches at 11ish and we can hang out someplace in town, then anyone who is interested is welcome to join us heading up to the museum around 1?

We may head home friday night or we may stay for saturday, it really depends how things go for DH with the job fair. They do a lot of interviews and it's just a matter of whether he's able to get them all in on friday or needs to stay around for a couple on saturday.

OK, so, having clarified with Hubby...we will definitely be there through saturday.  We will still do the museum on friday, but perhaps it would be better to meet up on saturday? I don't know how many folks work, or may have kids in school, or whatever. I know my 10yo would sure be thrilled if there were similarly aged kids there for him as well as for his little brothers. :)

Just checking in to say hello.... it's been a while!  We just got back from a vacation and it was great to get away and enjoy a little sunshine.  I'm so ready for spring to truly get here.  I'm looking into some preschool/homeschool stuff for the LO.  She's just misses the deadline by a couple weeks, I'm not sure how strict the districts and programs are regarding the Sept 1st start date.  OKay time for sleep....

Hello, I've been absent for quite some time but today, my kids told me they're too old for their Stokke chairs.  LMK if you know of anyone who'd want both for $30. One has the seatbelt, one got cut off a couple of years ago.  They're def'n well used but not sure if they'd be appreciated if I just dropped them off at charity.  Cheers

Totally off topic but this has me super mad & I would appreciate it if you would care to support my friend.

 

My very dear friend and fellow WAHM diaper maker Shannan of FBC has a broken bone because of a vaccume sales representative.
Her 9 month old preemie son that very nearly did not live & wears a heart monitor has a broken arm as well. All this because the vaccume demonstrator left a wet mess in her bathroom & did not bother to clean up or tell her he screwed up!!!

EDIT : Please keep Shannan & family in thoughts / prayers. I have removed the rest of the info & will pass on the suggestions to Shannan. Thank you to everyone that offered support!!

Are you in Anchorage?  Do you think they still have a good use out of them?  I don't care about stains and bangs.

I am!   How old are your kiddos?  I'm forever trying to find folks for my daughter to have play dates with (she's homeschooled)

 

 

Bubblingbrook.... HURRAY!!!!  I'm SO happy for you guys!  I know it's been a rough road for you both and I hope your adoption goes seamlessly!! 

 

 

Has anyone here ever fostered?   I'm seriously considering it.   The only apprehension I have is I tend to get very attached and I'm afraid it will destroy me emotionally.

We tried to foster adopt, but nothing ever came of it.
Oddly enough, we had called OCS to see if our finger prints were still on file, ( expired greensad.gif ) and they actually tried to get both of us to turn the baby over to them so they could be in charge of the adoption. Crazyness. We turned them down, and have no intention of even letting them know who we the family is.
