Fun Times at Carleton Farm!

AS_kids_PpatchPumpkinPatch2016_3

A few clouds did not deter over 100 people from SFOM (kids and their adults) from showing up at Carleton Farm on Saturday for a super fun pumpkin patch meetup!  Members enjoyed coffee and pastries before heading out to ride the zip line, cruise the “pony express” train, make their way through the corn maze, launch pumpkins from cannons, frolic in a pit of dry corn, and of course pick out pumpkins and get some great pictures!

The weather cooperated and a great time was had by all.  SFOM families probably made up at least half of the guests that morning, and it was wonderful to see folks out having fun and chatting with other members.

Special thanks to Angela Smith, Chris Shields and Carolyn Hostetler for helping to make this a successful event! We look forward to seeing you at the next event!

Positive Energy and Conversation at the annual SFOM Board Retreat!

image1
Your Seattle Families of Multiples Board had our 2nd annual retreat on October 2nd, and enjoyed a very productive day discussing club benefits, events, and general business. We reviewed the results of the 2015-2016 Year End Survey that many of you completed last summer (thank you!) and discussed what was going well, as well as areas that could use improvement. We also spent a good amount of time discussing our overall communications strategy, and came up with a plan that includes a monthly digest email of events, periodic outreach for new volunteers, as well as better consistency across Big Tent, the SFOM public website, and our Facebook pages.
Your SFOM Board is made up of volunteer twin and triplet parents who care deeply about our mission. Many thanks to Angela Smith, AnneMarie Kuhnau, Natalie Saint-Johnson, Diane Wies, Katrina Alexander-Stern, Anna Smith, Marloes Koning, Carolyn Hostetler, and Heather Pillsbury for giving their time at the retreat to help improve the way we serve our members. We are so lucky to have such a wide array of talents and enthusiasm from all of our Board members!  We are looking forward to the rest of our year!
Board Meetings are open to all members; if you’re a member interested in attending, we would love to have you and meeting dates are always posted on our Events Page. Also, there are still a couple of Board positions open and we’re always happy to have more Members-at-large, so if you have an interest in being a part of our Board, please reach out to info@seattlemultiples.com for more information.

Our Annual SFOM Summer Picnic was a blast

image

On Saturday, July 23rd, the sun was shining (but not TOO much) and the hot dogs were sizzling on the BBQ as 30+ families of multiples descended on the Seattle Children’s PlayGarden! SFOM had private use of this incredible play space, filling the park with the happy commotion that a group of multiples always brings! Kids of all ages floated toys down a creative water feature, preschoolers rode tricycles on the basketball court, toddler twins lined up to slide, big kids climbed up the tree house, infants chilled on blankets, and everyone visited the friendly chickens. Meanwhile, parents from all around the area had some time to chat and connect. Top that off with popsicles and ice cream, and it was another successful SFOM summer picnic!

A great big thank-you to coordinators Tabitha Burns and Sarah Larsen for making this a memorable summer highlight.

See you all next year!
