We got in!

A few weeks after we moved here, I searched on the internet for a play group. I found 3 in my area. 2 were full and one said that they felt sorry for me for just moving here and not knowing anyone, so they thought they wouldn't mind meeting me.

For security reasons they wanted to meet me somewhere in public rather then someones house, to see if me and my boys would be a good match to their group.

Now I totally understand that they want to make sure that I am not some crazy person who beats their kids or cusses them out for spilling a drop of milk. But either way when we were getting ready to meet then at the Fair I can't say that I wasn't a nervous wreck. I felt like I was rushing for a sorority again. Except there is only one sorority and there were also kids that had to be on good behavior too.

We had a great time at the fair and they waited two whole days to email me back to tell me that they would love for me to join the group.

So today we got to meet the group at someone's house.

We made it in!

The lady's house we went to today had the cutest game for the kids to play. I am not sure exactly what it is called. But the kids would wear these belts and on the back were tails of different animals that can be pulled of easily.

So they just chase each other around and grab each others tails.

I have got to find this game. Have you heard of it? It was a fisher price item.

Wild Man slept for 3 and a half hours when we got home!

This game is my new best friend.

While Wild Man was chasing everyone's tail, Romeo found the cutest girls and sat with them in the sandbox.

So we now have a playgroup and everyone seems really nice!

So I can count on a couple of hours each week where I won't have to be the main form of entertainment.

I'm so happy for you Katie! Nothing like being in a group for you and the boys to build relationships. Sounds like it was a lot of fun

That is hilarious. I didn't know they did it like that. I'm glad you and the boys got in. Have fun!
