What Have We Been Up To?

I realize I have become one of "those people" who isn't keeping their blog up to date. It may be annoying, but it is a good sign that we are busy & enjoying life! We have really been liking life in Champaign-Urbana, IL. Lauren & I are keeping busy during the day by going on with walks with our neighbors, playgroups, Mom's group at Church, Parents Morning Out (on Thursdays, she is at a church nursery from 9-11:30 playing with other kids, etc. while I get a break!), and a Numbers Class. Chad is enjoying his job, so that is good too!

Chad & I joined a small group this week with our church & really liked it. I was hesitant to leave Lauren with a sitter each week, but realize how important that is for us! It was cool because they were all people in a similar stage of life - married, newer parents, etc. We KNOW this is where God has called us to be & we are so thankful for that!

Here are some pics of Lauren being her happy little self!

Home Sweet Home!

Chad & I were able to get away for a few days over the Labor Day weekend & it was great! Nice to be away in warm weather (West Palm Beach, FL), together, sleep in, go out for dinner & just relax & enjoy our time was a nice getaway! It was also the first real vacation we have had since Lauren was born. She did great at my parents & everyone had a good time, which is a huge blessing! However, I am so happy to be home & back in our routine. I realize I really enjoy my life & being a wife & stay at home mom....I am blessed & being away made me realize how much I am!!
