On the way to Green Lake...boy have things changed!

We are currently en route to Green Lake for a weekend getaway with the Hunts, Glynns and Berndts! We are very excited to spend a relaxing weekend at the lake with great friends. The trip has been great so far, with me being able to catch up on some emails (thanks to Verizon's tethering capabilities) while Gracie took her nap.

Boy have things changed in a year though...Scott and I were just talking about how one year ago we were headed to Milwaukee for a little weekend getaway. Still at that age, Gracie slept most of the time and was pretty quiet when awake. This trip on the other hand, she has constantly been chatting since she woke from her nap. We have officially entered the "Are we there yet" stage. The worst part, I think this stage lasts for about 15 years! :)

Nevertheless, it's been a great drive so far and we are looking forward to the weekend. We'll be sure to post lots of pictures upon our return!

Grace to take classes at Notre Dame?

Our little Gracie is growing up sooo fast! Just this morning I was changing her diaper, and this evening... Well, this evening we got a letter notifying us that Grace has been accepted and is enrolled to take classes on Notre Dame's campus for the fall semester.

She is officially enrolled at Notre Dame's Early Childhood Development Center (ECDC) and will begin classes on August 25th.

We have been very pleased with our experiences and the staff at Friend's School and Daycare, but we feel the ECDC curriculum and staff will provide an even better learning experience for Gracie as she gets older (plus it is right down the road from our new house). The program is one of the best around and enrollment is limited (especially for 2 year olds) so needless to say, we couldn't be happier that she has been accepted.
