Yep, that’s where I’ve been for the past two weeks: spring break. For some families, this meant a trip to the warmer parts of the U.S.. For others, an overdue trip to international beaches. And for us?
Local. Definitely local. And any of you watching the news over the past two weeks (or living here) knows we started this Chicago spring break with a snow storm and just about ended with one too! That was followed by some fevers, coughs, and rain. All challenging, but definitely not the end of our story.
We had to get healthy and get creative. So our adventures included a trip to the Atheneum Theater to see the Emerald City Theater’s performance of Corduroy;
lunch and an afternoon spent at Lincoln Park Zoo;
an egg hunt and activities at the Kilbourn Park Community Garden;
Our own Easter celebration, full of eggs, family and food;
and, thankfully, some time spent in the yard.
The sun came out later in our break than we anticipated. The warmth, even later yet. Again, those of you living here with us know how weirdly Chicago Spring can act.
Sweetie headed back to school last week for Thursday and Friday. Two days, end of the week, with an assembly…yeah, they didn’t really count. Cricket went to work with Wife on Thursday, then used Friday and Saturday to work on getting healthy…again. So today, when the bell rang at 7:50 AM, into the school they went! 40°, rain, and all!
Did you all have a goood spring break? Is yours still pending, even later than ours? I hope you have a chance to relax, recharge, clean out, really, do whatever you need to on your break. Did we have the spring break we were looking for? Eh, not too sure about that. Thankfully, I was too busy enjoying the spring break we got to worry about it!
We’ll see you out there, friends!
