In the past couple months, we have:
Gotten Colin totally acclimated to and thoroughly loving preschool! After a challenging transition at the beginning, now I just send Colin running into the classroom to his loving and fabulous teachers, Angelica and Susan. He loves carrying his backpack, and he is constantly telling us all about his buddies and his fun exploits at PRESCHOOOL!
Picked a zillion apples and ate a zillion apples. There were pumpkins involved, but mostly lots and lots and lots of apples. Colin loved it. We did too.
Celebrated Rosh Hashanah here in Chicago, and as Colin likes to say it, "we shimmied at the synagogue for Rosh Hashanah." Colin had strep and hand-foot-mouth, and yet we made it to temple where the kids service had David and Colin dancing and jamming to the shofar. We also road tripped to Ohio for Yom Kippur, enjoying what might be our last schlep to Ohio before the arrival of this next munchkin, since long stretches sitting in a car seem not to agree with this fetus either.
Snuck off for a mid-week day trip to Madison for Jacey's big 3-0, which was, as you can guess, heavenly. If only we had recaptured the cuteness of our ever-growing bumps, which are indeed getting bigger and closer to eviction day.
Took a whirlwind solo trip to Fishkill, New York to officiate Amy and Josh's amazing lovefest of a wedding. It was amazing, I learned that I could potentially have a second career as a justice of the peace, and I was so glad to be there to help unite two wonderful people in marriage (even if they did do the legal part of it earlier - I'm not ordained as Rabbi Rachel or Reverend Rachel).
