I whipped up some simple double-sided napkins to go with the simple pottery napkin rings I'd made at the art center where we used to live.

Getting settled in this new house/old area has been interesting. It's handy to already know my way around, but some things have changed. For instance, we used to be members of two homeschool groups here. Only one seems to still be in existence and I'm not sure they're very active. So we'll keep looking and I'm sure will find some new friends. It's great to have so much family very close by, some of which are close in age to my girls.
