    A question I’d find interest in is how to make our children more interested in reading.

    Is there anything in the area like a Children’s Clothing Swap? I have so many clothes that my boys have outgrown. I would love to find a place that I can bring these clothes and come home with some “new” clothes in larger sizes- with the out of pocket expense. My Moms Group does this once a year, but it would be great to find something more regular.

    What are some good activities in the area for grandparents to do with their grandkids or are there any local grandparents groups? I watch my daughters son a couple times a week and want to get out with him more!

    I heard there used to be someone in the hilltown area who would teach you what was eidible on your own property (outside of your garden)! Wondering if anyone knows the person who does this? Or what are some great recipes using local goods from the area?

    My question: How do you bring (fun!) math into your household and engage your kids in real math problems? For example, we play a type of math word game at the dinner table. Would love other suggestions!

    Some questions I’d like answered: great places to sled for both younger and older kids, and where to find a good selection of children’s shoes at reasonable prices (the one thing we can’t buy on line!)
