Our little family has been in Carrboro for 6 weeks or so. We are enjoying the gritty, granola, art-loving community. The town is friendly and has many great local eateries, shops, and a wonderful farmer's market. Just a few minutes east is Chapel Hill, which is just lovely. We have enjoyed Friday nights at the Carolina Inn listening to live music and watching kids run around. Evening walks down Franklin St. have also been a highlight. We've also driven into Durham to visit friends and check out some of their restaurants.

Jon has started his first round of summer classes, so he is at school most of the day. The business school hosts many socials; I've only been to a couple but am looking forward to spending more time with his peers.

Miriam is over 8 months old now - hooray! She is crawling (very quickly), pulling up, standing, exploring everything. Our days are filled with swimming in the pool, taking walks, dance parties, napping, and meeting up with friends. We have also been so lucky to have lots of people visit already! I can't wait to discover more in our town and hang out more with other moms.

Enough with the words now... here are some photos! :)
