Heard about this one from a church deacon.  It's been a few years, but this is generally how the story went:

A couple who were not regular church attenders dropped off their kids at the church nursery, then left.  Eventually, church ended there was no one was there to pick up the kids, and the parents weren't answering their cell phones.  The people working in the nursery got the head deacon involved, and when an hour had passed after church and still no one had picked up the children or had called or had answered the cell phones, the children were turned over to our local Child Protective Agency.  There were two children, and if I remember correctly the older of the two was about 18 months old and the younger was an infant.

He told us that the parents were eventually tracked down and arrested.

There were some changes made to how and when kids could be dropped off at the church nursery.  Specifically, there would be no dropping kids off at the nursery then leaving.

Going to a special adult only evening event at our local science center featuring forensic science greats with DH and going to dinner before. What should I wear?

1: Black pants, tunic top with sparkles or colorful pattern, flats or boots.
2: Dark jeans, sequined tank top, denim jacket, boots.
3: Brown skirt, coral shirt, brown and coral boots.

It's Saturday!

I'd go with 1 or 3. Jeans might be too casual. If it's really fancy go with 1.
English doesn't borrow from other languages, it follows them down dark alleys and beats them up and searches their pockets for loose grammar.

Agreed -- I'm leaning toward 1.

Ok, thank you all. My goal is to get DH recuperated enough to enjoy dinner and the event.
