Chocolate And Soccer Balls

No rest for the weary! We were all unpacked with laundry done and put up by the time Tour Club met at Buddy Squirrel for a tour. The chocolate was great! The discount was even better! Making 20 people (more than half between the ages of 3-6) wait for 35 minutes before starting was really…

Visitin’

We spent today visiting with friends and family. I can’t believe it’s been almost 8 years since I lived in DC. It’s crazy how many old friends have moved away (and then moved back)! We started the day with brunch with our friends. We then went back to Rob and Sarah’s for a little visiting….

Really?

Really Milwaukee? Snow on the day we are leaving town? Definitely not fair! I’m sure it will have melted by the time we return. Our trip to DC went really smoothly. Alex is always fascinated with the airport and loves looking out the windows before we depart. Alex napped on the first plane (see here)…

A Sister

Alex says he is getting a sister, but it’s really a brother. We got a referral!! He was born 2.21.11 which will make he and Alex 2 years and 10 days apart. Now the next round of waiting begins…

Stoplight

Alex is getting better and better at soccer (or maybe I should say his attention span is increasing). This week he listened to the rules of a game (stoplight) and tried to play (versus just running and kicking the ball at will).
