Gina and I had a chance to get out of the house for the evening and attend the Chancellor's dinner for new faculty at UIS. We worried at first that we might not be able to find a babysitter since we are new to town, but Gina quickly connected with a local group of moms of multiples and they were able to recommend someone. Our babysitter did a great job of feeding and putting the boys to bed, and when we got home they were still fast asleep. The dinner was a nice chance for us to meet some other couples and mingle with university's upper administration. You would be proud ... I kept my silly sense of humor suppressed for this event. The food was excellent, and we were entertained by a musical group after dinner comprised of faculty and people from the community.
We are looking forward to our next date and hope to get the boys out to some of these events, as well.
