Weekend plans?

Where have you traveled? What places do you want to go but haven't yet?

What's the unhealthies food item in your house right now? The healthiest?

What's for lunch? Dinner?

Oh I'm used to bigger school districts here.  I think we must have 10 or 12 high schools alone and 50 elementary schools.  I looked it up, you have 2 hs, so 50/50 chance your dd might go to the same school.  And yes I understand that they are probably big schools and don't know everyone there.

Yeah, been through this already about the way the school districts are in other states.

That kind of stuff is strange.  I realized a little while ago that a woman that I worked with in IL (she now lives in NC) is Facebook friends with my cousin's husband's ex-wife who lives here in WV.  How weird is that?

I don't understand what you have "been through" on this subject.  I just pointed out you have 2 hs (making 2 random people who live in your school district have a 50/50 chance to going to the same school and if they are the same age, it might not be ridiculous think they "may" know each other), like Jam thinks.  I pointed out we have 12, I don't know why there is a thing about how things work.  I grew up in a town that had 1 hs, 1 ms and 1 elementary and I was always aware that we were a small school district and that there were many other school districts around us that were separate....we played them for sports, lol.  Some of them were bigger, but I don't think any of them were close to as big as other places, like where I live now.  Or even as big as your school district with 2 large hs.  Why is it such a stretch to understand that compared to where you live there are bigger and smaller school districts in other places?  I did not point out we has 12 hs to impress you.  But if 2 random kids the same age were said to be going to school in my school district, there would be much less chance that they would know eachother.  I thought that was implied.

Yes it can be interesting to look at your FB friends common friends.  I usually I assume I know who will pop up there, people who I know in that "group" or that "location".  But sometimes it is someone else I didn't know we had in common.  It's pretty likely to happen with my military spouse friends, since they move around...but it still can be interesting.

Oh my. I was just explaining that I am aware that districts are different in other states. 

Would it be possible for my dd to know that girl, I am sure. I guess they dont. Or at least not enough friends to go to her party. Shrug.

All I'm taking from your post is that you know a Valerie that might go to school near/where black/white's child does, Are you really that interested in the lives of others you don't know?
