New Friends

We are starting to get settled in our new town, and the kids and I have started venturing out a couple times a week rather than just staying at home all the time. No, we aren't finished getting everything settled in our temporary home, but for my sanity, I need people.
At church, we found out that the minister and his wife have a daughter who is about 6 months younger than Samantha and a son who is 6 months ( the day) younger than Jacob. At the swimming pool we met a lady with twins who are a month younger than Samantha. And she told us that they were having a playgroup after storytime at the library. So we invited our new friends from church. The other lady wasn't there, so we just went to the park together after storytime...and we all had a good time. Everyone at the church is very welcoming, and we have been invited to several things. I am so glad to be so welcomed.

We have gone to the pool several times, partly to have fun, and partly to meet new people. And sometimes we do get to meet new people, but sometimes, there are no other adults there. The pool will only be open through next Friday, so I will have to find a new place to go to meet people...and start making our new town feel more like home.

In the meantime, I am very grateful for the new friends we have made.
