Oh, the joy shifting the computer around! That is what has kept me till now with this post, but our taxes had to be done sometime. And I will say Bek and I get more than our fair share of it's hours since we have started blogging. Oh well...
The end of our week and most of last week, what with our first Dutch Heritage show practice and events of the weekend, have been rich in meeting new friends. Our home Church is quite small so we have been taking up extra opportunities to meet like-minded families. We were finally able to attend a Saturday Sabbath meeting that has actually been meeting in the basement of our Church. It was great to do something different and actually get to know some of the people that we just happen to either know their name or have seen at just about every homeschool event. We are looking forward to making it a habit, in addition to our regular services on Sunday morn.
skirt I wore a while back. I had nearly forgotten all about it until I went looking for the other valence I made (now that I have the curtain rod- I can't find it! Unusual and frustrating for me) in our old dress-up trunk. This was stashed in the top because ever since I got it I was for some reason going to let down the hem and I was always at odds with the situation that the blouse didn't have sleeves.
This time I just decided to wear it the way it was. This sweater kind-of hits the wrong laying spot, but I felt like wearing it and it showed a decent amount of the seamstress' work. I'll have to experiment with different undershirts and sweaters and maybe do another outfit with it!

Oh and those of you who have been ever so concerned with our trip, today we are being sworn in and signing our official pass-ports! A mile stone in our preparation to be sure!
Don't forget to leave a comment with your question!
Have you visited any new churches or groups lately?
