We started heading towards Chicago on Sunday morning. We drove halfway, about 6 hours, and stayed at a hotel in Rochester, MN. We took James swimming again and he didn't seem as scared this time. Monday morning we left for the remaining 6 hours of our drive to Oswego, IL to visit our good friends Ashlee and Glen Schneider. We hadn't seem them since Oct when baby Caleb was only 2 1/2 weeks old. He is growing fast and catching up to James. They are going to be best buds some day. But until they can both walk it will be Corinne and James chasing each other. They spent countless minutes going in circles after each other. It was so much fun to watch. Ashlee and I got to have lunch out and shopping one day, while the guys went to a Bulls game another. New Year's Eve Glen's parents generously offered to babysit the kids so we could go out for a little while. Once everyone was asleep we went out for drinks and dessert from 8-10. We then played games and all rang in the New Year together!
