What more can I say? This is evidently the ultimate thing to do in Chicago (I'm not a huge sports fan - LOL).
Thanks to a couple of construction workers, a lost hairband was rescued from the middle of the street.
First view of the water in Chicago ... when I was here in February, all the boats were gone. This was an amazing sight - boats everywhere!
Sunset on the way to Chicago ... I wish this view had been out our window (this was across the aisle)! The kids flipped a coin to sit by the window and my son won. The intent was to switch on the way back and we didn't get a window seat! I had one very unhappy camper then.
What a treat ... dinner waiting and ready? Thanks to a dear friend, my son is getting an occasional cooking lesson. How cool is that?

My little one was sure there was a fish in the river by the shore. She and her friend named it ... and drove my older one up a wall! He was sure it was the tip of a stick. Let the debates begin!
We went to the science museum - not for the exhibits this time but for some auditions! Unfortunately, the website gave me a choice of Saturday or Sunday signups and 2:00/6:00 time slots ... so I chose Sunday at 6:00. Guess what? Auditions were Saturday and Callbacks were Sunday!!! BUT - if we're interested in their program, we can come the first day of class and the director will do a brief audition before class starts. I have a feeling it's more like ... anyone who wants to pay can come! LOL

Feeling thankful tonight. I started going to a support group a few weeks ago ... Many of the women there live in a shelter. Many have a challenge just in finding a job or getting transportation. Some have no idea of the riches inside. Others have a fighting spirit I admire. These women are amazing on many levels ... they fight things on a daily basis that are easily within my grasp. Not only do I admire their strength, but it makes me want to do something to help. It revives my sense of purpose and ministry. For that I am truly thankful.

Weekend swim! I'm glad we can still have pool time before the weather starts getting cold. Lately there is a crisp bite in the morning breeze, which I personally find very refreshing! I guess it's my northern roots getting a breath of fresh air.

It finally feels like Christmas! (Thanks to my friend who came to spend the evening decorating and sharing coffee!)
