Alisah: I'm trying to steer members of the discussion groups who have PIR 8/6/2010 to the group I started for you all. The PIR group will have many more moms on it, from different divisions but same ship (and grad date). Go to "Groups" and then type in "PIR 8/6/2010" in the search box. Then join. I just started the group this afternoon, but it is an easier way to follow (new posts are at the top rather than throughout, like in a discussion group). It also will have many more moms eventually and much more info.
