I'm in Springfield so a bit south of that area.
I guess I love the idea of field trips and making new friends, but I don't know how to take the first step. Where are the groups? How do I begin? I just feel really lost. On top of it all, ds LOVES preschool and he gets in tears when I mention that some parents teach their kids. I want to find some groups to show ds what it's really like and I absolutely have to figure out if I can offer him the social interaction that he craves on a daily basis. Even when he was just months old he needed to be out and around lots of people or he was miserable. He was a great first baby, the only way to keep him happy was to go out to eat, out to shop, hang out with friends, lol.
