Moms' Meeting Summary

We had a great time tonight.  It was fun to get caught up.  Two friends are expecting babies in May only 10 days apart.  And we met a new friend tonight!  I'll send out a couple of prayer requests via email.

The next Moms' Meeting will be Monday, February 21st @ the Mall Deli @ 6:00pm.

New opportunity for the CHEA Teens:  We will be implementing a Teen Night on the 1st Thursday of each month.  The teens will get together to play games from 6:30-9:00pm.  The host teen(s) will provide plates, cups, silverware, and drinks.  The visiting teens will bring snacks to share.

I will post the locations for each get together for the next few months in the left sidebar, so that it will remain easy to find.

KANSAS DAY on January 29th!!!  Kansas will be 150 years old.  There will be some activities at the Fort in Ft. Scott that day.  Rondi will be looking into details to pass along.

Many good ideas were brought up for possible Field Trips:

Wilderness Trails in various locations.
Joplin Audubon Center
Springdale Jones Center - ice skating and various other fun activities
Diamond - George Washington Carver homeschool day in the Spring
Prairie State Park
Roller Skating
Greenbush activities (ropes' course, other educational sessions like movie making)
Hollister Gun Range

***Please contact Naamah if you have an interest in a particular field trip.  You can work with her to make it happen.  She will need plenty of help with whatever options are chosen.

Another suggestion was the youth get together at the Pittsburg Public Library on Wednesday afternoons from 4:00-6:00pm.  Apparently they have a chessboard on the floor of a room and play life-size chess.  FUN!

As always, there is always the option of initiating a get together for shooting hoops at the Y or a park date.  A suggestion for a Chess Tournament was thrown out for the guys and a possible Tea Party or something else fun for the girls.

Lots of fun ideas!  If you want to see one or more of them happen and you are willing to help, please contact Lezlie or Naamah.

Robin gave us the scoop about getting great deals from a couple of sites:
Ask her if you have questions.

  1. I don't know what age group we were thinking of for the tea party, but S attended one up in Fort Scott and loved every minute of it. This would be a great option for either moms/daughters or just something to put on for the girls with a formal etiquette presentation.
