Since We've Been Back

We've settled back into a routine since returning to Minneapolis. The first week was rough for Fiona. It took her quite a while to adjust to the time change, she was teething, and she came down with an eye and ear infection. The first two days at daycare (only half days to ease the transition) saw lots of tears, and I ended up keeping her home Wednesday through Friday due to her ear infection. However, the second week at daycare was much, much better. A not-so-fun part of our return has been a slew of repairs needed for the house and other items. New water heater for the house, new alternator for one of the cars, our furnace is making loud noises, and our primary laptop is literally smoking. We've had very few repairs to the cars or the house over the last couple years so I guess we are due. On a lighter note, Chris ran the Twin Cities marathon about a week ago and did well. He didn't run as fast as he hoped (still his best time yet), but that is to be expected since he essentially took every other week off from training while we traveled so much over the summer.

Chris volunteers on the board of a pediatric clinic that offers affordable care to uninsured or under-insured children. We went to the clinic's open house on Saturday together. 
A couple recent pictures of our big girl who is running around the house, kicking leaves, stuffing goldfish crackers in her mouth and beelining it to the stairs to climb every chance she gets.
