Meet Your Members Monday!

Amanda Lee, SAA President
1. Where are you from
Calera, OK

2. What's your student's name and what year are they?
Brian Lee, MSIII

3. What or who made you join SAA?
Spookoween--Holly greeted me with a smile and told me that SAA was not only there for our students but also for us wives! I was having a hard time transitioning and getting used to the idea of Brian being back in school after 6 years straight of being in school and she really helped make me feel like what I was doing was important too.

4. Do you have kids and if so how many?
Harmony-8 (going on 13), Spencer-4, Scout-1

5. If you were a superhero what would you want your superpower to be and why?
I'd say it is a tie between being everywhere at once and never having to sleep which actually go hand in hand :)

6. Have you ever had to get stitches? If so how old and what for?

7. If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional. with whom would it be?
I would love to have met my great grandmother. She was an avid softball player up into her 60s. She pitched an all girls team (mostly made up of her daughters and daughter in-laws) and won most of them! She was a full blood Choctaw Indian and was a spit-fire!

8. If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you?
Reese Witherspoon hands down!

9. If you had only six months left to live, what would you do with the time?
Spending every waking moment with my family visiting the world and making memories


What's the only animal in the world that can't jump?

elephants :)


(Man I really thought I’d stump you on that one.)

Back-to-School Playgroup!

Wow! So I have been so excited for OSUCOM's SAA this upcoming school year and we have really started it off with a bang!

Last week we had our first out & about playgroup and a chance to meet a lot of new/interested members at our annual Meet & Greet. I feel like we did our job in getting the new members excited about this upcoming year as well. Today we had our first home playgroup and there was a whopping 25 people. I don't know about y'all but I think that's pretty awesome. I believe my favorite part was when we had a few walk in and say, "I don't have any kids, I just wanted to come and talk." I LOVE IT!!

It is such a blessing to have other people who are going through the same things in life to talk to. We definitely did A LOT of talking and for those of us who had just met, we left feeling as though we had known each other for years. Oh and I think the kids had fun too, ha!

We had lots of goodies.
(I don't think all of them had made it to the table before this picture.)

Some dress-up time.

Lots of chit-chatting.

And threw in a little outside playtime.

Such a great day with great friends. Can't wait till the next one!

A Busy Thursday for SAA!

Yesterday morning SAA's playgroup headed to the $1 movie to see Kung Fu Panda 2.
Some of the gang that went.

Last night we had our annual Meet & Greet.
We loved reuniting with old faces and we especially enjoyed seeing some new ones!

We are all so excited for this school year.
Get ready because its going to be a busy one!

Playdates: Because You're Worth It =)

Playdates are such a joy and can turn that frown upside-down for us mommas (or daddies) who stay at home with our kiddos.
So for those of you who are in SAA and debating on whether or not to participate in our playgroups hopefully this will push you from maybe to OF COURSE!

These are some collages of just a few playgroups we had this past spring semester.
