Visiting Illinois

Hello from Illinois, I'm out for a visit with my father-in-law. It's been shopping, shopping, and more shopping. When I'm in town I make an annual trip to the Chalk Board,(a terrific teacher store). I spent way too much money in that place. I think I'm addicted to dice because I'm always buying them. I just bought a dice that has 3 small dice inside them. I bought 18 of them! Well they were only .75 a piece. I just had to have them. I can't wait let my kids try them out. Today I went to the Brookfield Zoo. I love to visit the zoo. I wish I had one closer to home. It was pretty hot today so many of the animals were not very active. I still can't figure out how to upload a picture from my iPad so I'll add some pictures soon. Tomorrow is a big day! I'm meeting up with my skyping buddy from Iowa! I'm so excited that I can't sleep. Mrs. Hilton from Morning Sun first grade in Iowa is meeting up with me. We skyped all year with our classes. I'm looking forward chatting about new projects we might do this coming year. It's all very exciting. Pictures tomorrow. Try a random act of kindness today! Claire


  1. You are literally right in my hood! I work about 3 minutes from the Brookfield Zoo (we go there on a field trip every year) and live right by The Chalk Board in DG! And yes, it is HOT here! Thank God I'm flying out to San Fran tomorrow morning to some cooler weather.:) Enjoy IL!
