Because we moved here weeks before I actually begin my job, we've had a lot of time on our hands. That was the plan, so that we could be sure to get all settled before the semester begins, but we've had to make a conscious effort to make sure that we still enjoy the summer as well. Yesterday, our big outing of the week was going to visit the shoreline of Lake Michigan. Chicago has plenty of places to get wet, and we heard about a spot that was sandy like the beaches we imagine in our heads, so we headed over.
It was a grand time, and we are excited to go again. Little other news aside from getting a few pictures hung and learning our way around a little more. We miss and love you all!
