17150Re: Newcomer checking in
- Aug 11, 2013While I was much younger, I would think I have outgrown the activities in which I had participated. Nowadays I'm more more content with needlework and such. My daughter is five and is excited to "dress up like a princess and go camping." I look forward to using this as a bonding experience between the two of us and hope to foster a love of history with her.
Despite my previous experience, I'm treating this as though I'm a newcomer, simply because it's been so long and the experience I did have was rather limited. I'm determined to do this right and have been researching tirelessly.
Thank you for all your help and I'll most certainly try to come up in October. :-)

I had some slight experience with the SCA about a decade ago when a very ex-boyfriend introduced me. I only went to a couple of events, but it stayed with me. Due to mundane life getting in the way, I haven't had the opportunity to participate though I've continued to pine away. Now that my daughter is a little bit older (and we have some more disposable income...daycare expenses are crazy!) I finally will be able to join in the way I've wanted to for years. I'm excited to be able to join all you fine people in Society. Thank you all for having me. >>>
