Your chance to help us improve!

Hopefully you’ve all received the email from Adrienne with the link to the survey that we have put together to try to learn what our StC group members are looking for in group events, resources, and activities.

Please take the time to complete the survey as soon as you can.  It will only take about 2-3 minutes and it will help us plan the future of the group in a way that will include and provide interesting offerings for the most people possible.

Click here to go to the online survey.  It is anonymous, so please let us know how we are doing and how we can improve!

Pumpkin Patch this Sunday

This month’s meeting is being taken on the road!  We’ll be meeting at Eagle’s Fork Pumpkin Patch in Moscow Mills at 4pm on Sunday, October 24. 

Bring the whole family!  This is a great opportunity for fall family photos and great memories.  Join us!!

Eagle's Fork
65 Eagle Fork Lane
Moscow Mills, MO 63362
(636) 366-9825

They are located off of Hwy 40 and John Creech Road. If you are headed north on 40 you turn left on John Creech Rd and then an immediate right onto Eagle Fork Lane. It's right there up on the right hand side and visible from Hwy 40.

We did this a few years ago as a group and had a decent turn out! You don't have to pay to get in, only for pumpkins you buy, snacks if you choose and there are activities you can do to pay for but those are optional. We can just hang out and let the kids run around or even do a hay ride! If you plan on going, email Adrienne, ( so she can get some sort of count of who is coming to keep an eye on families that show up. Thanks!

p.s. If it's raining that day, stay home! :)

Congratulations, Abby!!!!


Abby won her first Special Olympics medal on Sunday, October 17.  Hooray for Abby!!

Mom’s Night Out 2010! Coming soon!


Mark your calendars now for November 12 from 6 to 8 pm.  It’s time for Mom’s Night Out at the Painted Pot again!  The StC Community Group will pay for your fee for the evening, you only pay for whatever pottery you want to work on.

This is a really fun night of laughs, good food, drinks, and lots of great friends.  We’ll be meeting at the Painted Pot, choosing items to decorate, and enjoying some moms-only time.  Last year this was a HUGE hit, and we are still talking about some of the super cool things that were made. 

This is a GREAT opportunity to do some very special customized Christmas gifts, so be sure to plan to join us.  Bring a yummy appetizer or dessert to share, too.

The BONUS is that Family Therapy Solutions will be having a "Parent's Night Out" Respite night that night so if you need a sitter and/or respite provider for ALL your children, this will be avail through them. MORE INFO TO COME SOON!

September group meeting

Our September group meeting was lots of fun, especially for our younger attendees… the kids!  We had 8 families and about 30 adults and children.  It was a nice cool fall evening, perfect for sliding and swinging, and plenty of visiting between the parents.

We were most wonderfully pleased to meet sweet little Leah, one of our newest group members.  She was a hit with all ages, and she was happy to oblige with tons of cuteness.   Welcome Leah and family!!

We practically had the park to ourselves, so we took advantage of a “group swing” time!

Our next meeting will be October 24 at 4pm at Family Therapy Solutions.  We hope to see a really good crowd that night, too!  Come and join us!

Preschool playgroup next week!

Our next preschool playgroup (weekday) is next Friday, October 15, at City Centre Park in St. Peters at 10 am. This has been a great place for kids of all ages the last few times we’ve met there.  We hope for beautiful fall weather! 

All birth-through-preschool kids, parents, and siblings are welcome!  We hope to see you there!  It’s a really great opportunity to get to know and visit with other parents in a relaxed environment.  And sometimes we go to lunch afterward, too!

We are also trying to get weekend dates on the schedule for the preschool group.  If you have ideas of a place that would work, please email  We’re working on a couple of dates for October and November weekends.  Details as soon as they’re available.

September preschool playgroup fun

We had a good time at the park last month!

Anthony showed off his driving skills.

Jack explored the area next to the playground, showing off his well-controlled high step!

Braska and Kinlee love the swings!

We worked up an appetite, so we went to get lunch afterwards.  Chicken fingers and french fries were very popular!

More dates soon! Stay tuned!  If you would like to host a playgroup date, please let us know!
