I have been absent from the Internet for over two weeks, and I haven’t missed it one bit! But I have missed connecting with online and local friends while we’ve been away. We took a 16-hour drive to my in-laws house north of Chicago, and while we were there, my sons met their Polish relatives, visited Chicago’s Botanical Garden, Field Museum, the Brookfield Zoo, and the Kohl Children’s Museum. It was so much fun and quite an experience for them. As I have time, I’ll post a few photos from our excursions. (Be sure to click through the next three posts to see photos from those fun “field trips.”) Here’s a photo of my 4-year-old with his “Babcia.” He’s very close to her, and he loved her small vegetable garden and other flowers.
If you’d like to read about our long drive and our first week in Chicago, I have written about that in my newspaper columns, which you can access by clicking on the links below.
