Last night a bunch of homeschool moms went out for dinner at Chili's in a neighboring town. It was a great time. There were eleven of us - and two husbands even showed up and ate dinner on the other side of the restaurant. We laughed and talked and got to know each other better. The only thing I hate in a larger group like that is that you are typically seated at a long table and can't talk to everyone. If you sit at one end - you miss conversation with people at the other end. If you sit in the middle, you never know WHO to talk to - although that doesn't stop me!
I had a great time. Our next get-together is going to be a homeschool support group meeting at my house, which seems to be right smack in the middle of everyone. I honestly can't wait. This is a group of intelligent, funny, interesting women that I happen to have a lot in common with. On another interesting note, many of these women have just moved to the area, as if we were all being put here for one another. I am so thrilled.
