this is the color of the sky

all the time. Oh man. The skies here are amazing. It does rain. We were afraid that it wouldn't rain. But we have already experienced three or four thunderstorms.

So we met a few people on our street. All of them have lived in Chi-town. Yup. This seems to be the next stop for all of the young couples with young kids. The neighborhood gossip lives across the street. In a matter of 10 minutes I had the low-down on pretty much everyone. It is always good to be in the gossip's good graces. They somehow make sure everything is running smoothly. In Chicago, it was this guy named Harry. He started smoking cigars around 6:30 AM. I saw him while walking the dog and then later while walking the dog and the kid. It was somewhat endearing that he thought nothing of blowing cigar smoke right over my baby. It was always fun to figure out how to non-chalantly move the stroller away from him. Every street needs those people.

We are going to be out-of-pocket for the next week. I promise to be better about writing once we get back.
