Unless it was a serious out of the way thing, I would be there with a
car for them each and every week that they want to come. Parents under
stress often times forget the little things in life that are handed to
them. Perhaps this is the reason for lack of a thank-you.
The whole ride thing reminds me of a guy that used to work at a bowling
center I used to 'hang out' at on Rhein-Main AB. There would be time when
share-a-ride (kinda like ride share where you have a pre mounted sign for
your off base town you live in, anyone lives there they pick you up and
get you home). This guy lived in the opposite direction from the town that
i lived in, yet any time he passed me on his way out the gate after
closing the center (~11:30pm) he would stop and give me a lift home. Never
accepted any gas payment offers and just shrugged off my thanks (and the
the one my parents also gave him). Of course my turning 17 and getting a
drievr's license ended all the need for that.

You've got at least one boy very interested and 1 kinda sorta right now.
Run with them. It would be a shame to see them drop out because of
logistical problems. Don't mind mom. She's probably just stressed out.
