We love our job, but often it leaves us with very few weekends or evenings to "do normal life things." We have really enjoyed this weekend to do just that... Last night we got to make homemade pizza together and play mini-golf with some friends. Today we got to sleep in a bit, get outside, run some errands, mow the yard, do some laundry, catch up with some friends on the phone, and then go out with some friends for ice cream. Nothing special necessary, but we really, really have enjoyed this "real weekend!"
Hard to believe we have less than 4 weeks left of the semester. I'm not ready to say goodbye to this really wonderful year!! What a joy it has been to settle in here in Champaign.... it really does feel like home.
