Thank you to everyone for introducing yourself! It is fun to get to know everyone and see where you are headed. Mag and her son did a map last time. They are planning on posting another one this time. Maybe they will even be able to include travel destinations.
You should have received and email letting you know who your partner is. Email us if you didn't get it and it is not in your spam folder. This is where the fun begins. Remember the swap guidelines are just a minimum and you can add and personalize the swap however you want within those parameters. Or you can use them as a jumping off point and up the stakes. Just make sure both you and your partner are both whole heartedly in agreement. Also make sure that you are including all the swap requirements.
We thought you might like to know how we make the pairs. We paired you based on these items in this order:
1. Who your previous partner was if you had one, or who you already knew.
2. Children are older or younger
3. Number of children in family
4. Where you live, making sure it is not next to each other.
5. Travel month.
If a mistake happened we are so sorry. We do our best. This time we tried to simplify things for ourselves by not including individual ages or genders. Next time we may throw the ages back into the mix because it helps narrow it down some. If you have suggestions please take note of them and give them to us at the end when we send out the exit surveys. We hope you all have fun this round. We had tons of fun last time.
