A couple of weeks ago we decided that Sharon needed to take us all up to Knoxville to Three Rivers Market Co-op, which she and Sarah and Tia always rave about. We all left our kids with their dads and drove up in Sharon's van together (except Tia, who doesn't live down our way anymore). Obviously, six moms in a mini-van are threats to society, because no sooner had we driven two miles when we see flashing blue lights in the rearview mirror.
What a fun, fun night. Seven moms, 21 children between us, 17 of which are boys. We for sure needed a night out. And what would a night out be, for moms of mostly boys, without police cars, cockroaches, and peanut butter? I'm just sorry that Kristina wasn't here to enjoy this night....

You forgot the part where the waitress dumps an entire pizza pie into Sixredheads' lap...
And that Sharonkay was calmly talking on her cell phone with her hubby when she oh-so coolly reached under the table and snatched up that sucker. I don't think she even paused to take a breath.
What the full-of-himself Trooper actually said was "I don't like people passing me." As my mom often says of people like that: It was his one chance all day to play God.
It was a wonderful, adventurous, boy-free night. :-)

did I tell you that I emailed my first "book club" person and she said, basically, that evenings wouldn't work for her because her daughter plays hockey in Michigan and her husband works nights and she tries not to use up her free babysitting (she has way older kids ... like, marrying age) unless it is really important.
maybe that explains why there are so many mumblies around these here parts. They were former homeschoolers trying to get people to do things with them ...

What an awesome night out! I'm so glad no tickets were given...the creep. I bet he had another agenda...
I'd give anything to have a fun night of moms like that. I'm so glad you had a mostly fun time. I'm also relieved that no one found any creepy crawlies in their food!
