The Breakfast Club

Giulia has been here for just 3 days and it has already been a busy week with school appointments, setting up a phone, a trip to the bank, meeting friends at the Yacht Club to watch Cameron sail, a trip to Target, and of course Starbucks.  Americans really do have a Starbucks on nearly every corner.  After Senior Class Registration yesterday we had Aidan’s  Breakfast Club over to ours for brunch.  As this group usually does, they played cards for hours.  Rebecca, as you can see, is very serious about her rules for the game.

Nesting and Getting Ready

We are about to get a new kid.  So we nest.  India and I have spent the last 2 weeks getting ‘The Nanny Room’ ready for Giulia.  Don’t worry Giulia, there won’t be any babysitting or ‘nannying’ happening here  🙂  Welcome to your new home away from home!

In July we took a quick trip to Chicago for a few days.  We spent most of our time while touring trying to find the best spots to cool down, The Crown Fountain was a favorite for all of us.
