Hi GainesvilleMoms,

I hope you are having a wonderful Thursday! I am super excited to announce that will be hosting a Spirit Station at the March for Dimes coming up on March 26! We are looking for volunteers to help encourage the walkers and hand out snacks and drinks. You are more than welcome to bring your kiddos along as this is a very family-friendly event.

And don't forget to RSVP for our FREE upcoming event for moms and kids at Okito America on Jan. 29. We are going to have a great time learning Zumba, self-defense and more!

Have you heard the news about the new Starbucks size, the 31-ounce Trenta? Do you frequent Starbucks, or would you rather have a homemade (and less expensive) coffee at home or elsewhere?

Moms are always looking for good deals to save their families a buck. If you are looking for great deals and/or coupons, are there any specific places or Web sites that you check? Come share your hot spots with other moms!

One GainesvilleMom is looking for advice on VPK registration. Several members have chimed in with some great helpful hints. Is there anything special this mom should know about VPK registration? Do you have any questions about the registration process?

Last but not least, a startling number was just released in the news. Ninety girls who attend a Memphis school are now pregnant or have already had a baby this school year. These young moms account for 20 percent of the school's female population! What's your reaction to these startling statistics? The school is taking steps to try to do something about these numbers. Do you think it's the school's responsibility to do something about the high teenage pregnancy rate?

Hope you have a great weekend!
