Hi Jennifer,
That's a great idea. It'd be really fun to have a place to share plans for
playdates and outings, as well as childcare. I know one of the challenges
for the parents' group has been arranging more social activities, so perhaps
a list with that focus would spark more of these. I'll set up a google group
(because that's the service I know how to use =3D)) and people are welcome =
to
use that - or if someone knows of a better service, they can set it up and
we'll use that instead. I'll send out the link to the google group in a few
minutes. Look forward to getting to know you all!

Best,
Erica
