I don't know too many of my son's friends parents, especially not well enough to ask one of them if he could have a ride. But my hubby will be traveling, and we put our younger child to bed rather early (7pm), and my oldest has to go to a night practice/meeting for Performing Arts (from 7-9 pm).
He can't skip it because it's mandatory, (and he'd be bummed if he had to miss). I hate the thought of waking my youngest to go pick him up, so i was thinking of emailing one of the moms who lives about 5 min. from us, to ask her for a ride that night. (And I'd offer to return the favor.)
I dont' know the mom (never met her), but I trust her (she actually knows a friend of mine). Anyway, do you think that would be weird to ask her? If not, should I call or email? (I feel weird calling!)

"does he have a friend that is in the program with him? maybe go home with that kid after school (or stay the night if it's the weekend) and just ask if they can bring him home."
Yes, that is the mom who I'm asking about (her son is in PA with my son). It's on a Tues. night and I can take my son (no problem to put our little one to be a little late), it'd just be nice to have him get a ride home.
Also, thanks manna1qd! (I was afraid someone would reply with something like, "how can you let your son go with someone you don't know!" But this kid is a nice kid and they had a "pasta party" at their house for the kids in Cross-Country, which my son was also in.
