Thanks Frazier! I set that up for our homeschooling group where many families live in different cities and i wanted them to feel included. (that's why I didn't make it CoMo Backyards) :) Hmmm... Backyards of Central Missouri perhaps would work too. Not that I'd mind if others in MO joined in the fun!

Nice one! I wanted to ask about your mission Backyards of Missouri. The title implies statewide, but you gave it a 50-mile radius. So is it for Missouri or just central Missouri? If you gave it a maximum radius but said "but only Missouri" wouldn't that work, for a statewide mission?
