Our trip is coming up and with that our to-do lists skim the floor! To start, we know a yoga instructor from German School Chicago and at a silent auction we purchased a private, 1 and a 1/2 hour lesson with her. One of our goals for this upcoming trip is to do yoga every morning with the entire family. I don’t really know if this is going to work… but we might as well give it a try! She conveniently put together a list of areas (balancing, strengthening…) and a number of poses doable for the entire family. The class was great!
An early morning postcard: In order to get our information out there to everyone we took a picture and printed some labels for the backside. At about 7:30 my parents kicked us out of bed and into some clothes, smiles, and backpacks. Then on a damp turf we positioned ourselves in front of a tiny tripod. I received 2 mosquito bites and after a half hour of smiling, repositioning, and who-knows-what… the last picture we took was the one we ended up using:
Oh and I almost forgot to mention: we met Stephanie Izard! After a walking architectural tour of Chicago (also on our to-do list), we drove to the famous Girl & the Goat (you can imagine which list that was on). Unfortunately, they were not open for lunch but we saw her sitting there with another woman in a meeting. We went right in and shook her hand. It was awesome.. she looks just like she did on Top Chef!
Our countdown is now down to…. 7 days and we’re getting excited!
