We went to an ECFE picnic tonight. It was a lot of fun. There were water baloons for the kids. We loved it. Our whole family got into the action... imagine that! Nora especially loved throwing things that exploded! Every time something exploded, she'd shout "sweet!"
Rick took Ava to ECFE this year (Early Childhood/Family Education). There are age specific classes. Rick was the only dad in the class, but - as usual - he got along famously with everyone. It was strange to go to a picnic and be the only woman who hadn't taken her child to this class. All of the "unknown spouses" were husbands ... and me. We had a great time. The food was wonderful - lots of great salads. The conversation was actually NOT centered around our children. These gals were very hip and current and artistic and... interesting. I wish the ECFE classes that I had taken Via and Noni to were this much fun.
(The gal who hosted had a rockin' house. I'd like to host sometime, but the pressure to have a fabulous house might overwhelm me. We'll see how I feel tomorrow.)
Got to go help Rick put the kids to bed.
