  1. I just wanted to say how much I have been enjoying your blog. When we moved to the area, I googled your site and it has been so helpful in finding things to do. We are going to be moving again in a few years and I started to look up sites for some of the possibilities and was really disappointed that there are not sites anywhere else. So essentially: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This is such a great resource and you are much appreciated.

  2. Jordan it has been my pleasure. It started as a hobby, and certainly still is that, but I do enjoy growing my "baby". There are some sources out there too, look up Macaroni Kid in the areas you are considering moving to. They are starting to move into areas throughout the country and do provide news and events for local parents.
