Down to Dallas

We arrived in Dallas a week ago today for our summer internship. We are excited to be here and glad that we found some place to rent right across the street from where we were last year and close to the office. Ethan is ecstatic that we live right next to the fire station and the DART rail and the hospital. (fire engines, trains and ambulances...what more could a little boy ask for?)
Eric is working again this summer for a law firm downtown called Vinson and Elkins. They treated us great last year so we were glad to come back to work for them. We don't exactly hate the paycheck either. Anyway, we'll keep you posted on our adventure here in the Big D.

Graduate From Business School: Check

As many of you may know, Eric took a year off law school to do a one year business masters degree her at Duke's Fuqua School of Business. The degree is called a Master of Management Studies and it is basically the first year classes that an MBA would take. The program was pretty rigourous, but as usual, Eric kicked trash and took names. (I'm sure he would argue.) Anyway, I am really proud and excited that he got this degree that he so enjoyed. Here are some pictures of graduation... I really was only present the amount of time it took me to snap the photos. The rest of the time I was out in the lobby with Eth and Libbs. I managed, somehow, to see Eric handed his diploma, so I feel very lucky! Nice work, Honey!

Since Daddy's Been Home

We've had a good couple weeks between Eric finishing finals and leaving for our internship in Texas. We've filled it with lots of fun stuff: trips to the park, stories, making cookies, rides in the jeep and two fun activities with our friends, the Mills. We took a day trip to Falls Lake, and hit an awesome beach there. Ethan and Libby had a ball splashing in the warm water, playing in the sand and eating oreos and potato chips. We also attended a Durham Bulls game, the minor league baseball team in town, and I have to admit I had a lot of fun. (Ordinarily I'd rather watch paint dry than baseball.)
We are going to miss being in Durham for the summer but very glad we have an extra year here in NC.

Thank You Note II

Dear Body,
Thank you for not giving up on me. Because thinking back, I don't recall eating a single vegetable while I was in college.

While I Was Sleeping

This is what happens when you have a napping mommy, an open container of yogurt and a baby in the same house. At least she's happy!

Libby's Vocab

Several new words have recently burst into Libby's vocabulary and it is such a treat to hear her trying to talk. Here is a sampling of some of the words she says (or attempts): dada, mama, car, yogurt, Wal Mart, Kroger, night-night, no (sniff, sniff), Hailey, Jack, dolly, vroom vroom (for a car), num nums (food) and all other words are either a shriek, a grunt or hiss.

I love hearing her new little words. I can't wait to hear more.
