well we had our meeting today and one new member came. we had an excellent time! the weather wasn't very cooperative though, we had a snow storm!! we did discuss the camp-out. we discussed a fee for the camp out and we thought that $20 per family would be a good price. we came to this amount because of some of the crafts (we are going to get the supplies) and taking care of any other things we need to get (porta potty if a good amount of people come, trips into town, we were even talking about some time at one of the local lakes, big breakfast sunday morning.) we would also like to have some MfL/MI merchandise for sale here, i have emailed jan and am waiting for her reply. we are very excited about the camp-out and we have some really good ideas for games, crafts and fun for both kids and adults. we also discussed going to our local botanical gardens for the "gardening with your kids project" for march. i am also going to post the seed project and something about growing sprouts. the membership drive in may, the conference in april (it doesn't look like anyone from the group will be able to attend this event), speakers for the teleconferences and writers/artists for the magazine. if i missed anything please feel free to add it :)

We are not only looking for moms who would like to join our group, BUT we are also looking for moms who have talents and interests they would like to share with our group ... possibly as a guest speaker at one of our meetings.
Some of the topics that would be of interest to our members include homeschooling/unschooling, gardening/canning, alternative energies/green living, writing/publishing, running for local office, etc ...If any of these topics appeal to you and/or you have experience in any of these areas and would like to share your knowledge with other moms, please contact me via this thread, pm me at CafeMom http://www.cafemom.com/home/Leslillli or contact me thru the Meetup Group at: http://moms.meetup.com/3675/message/?recipientId=6034274
