I'm ready for Spring!

Mica is taking a school trip in the spring. He's going to Chicago. 

I'm so ready, for this to happen, for him and us. 
  • I'd like to be done with the monthly payment, for his trip.
  • It will be nice to have a break from Mica, and Mica have a break from us. He's a good kid, but I honestly think everyone needs a break from their routine at times.
  • He'll have fun! 
I really love that their bus is a company has more than one staff member on duty at all times. One of their staff stays outside their door in the hallway at night; to make sure nothing bad happens. Kids would have trouble sneaking away. Mica's a rule follower, but you never know peer pressure could set in. I teach college aged kids, and have seen the change in what I like to call "kidadults".

The boys haven't been to Chicago, since they were this old...

It's really time we all go again. A great friend lives there. We could stay with him.

Mica will experience the big city once again, without us.

I know Mica's not flying, but I'd like the best carry-on luggage. Do you have any brands you recommend? We have toiletry bags, bigger suit cases, but nothing in between small and big.

I'm not sure what Mica's itinerary will be, but with it being Chicago there's lots to do. Here's things I would want to do:

  • Eat a Deep Dished Pizza
  • Go to the Museum of Science and Industry
  • Check out art at the Chicago Art Institute
  • Visit The Bean and other outside sculptures
  • Go up the steps to the Willis Tower, ok maybe the elevator
  • Visit Chicago Cultural Center (one I haven't been to)
  • See Sue at the Field Museum
  • See Jelly Fish at the Shedd Aquarium
  • Experience art at Smart Museum of Art (one I haven't been to)
  • Experience more art Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art (one I haven't been to)
  • Get a taste of culture at the Swedish American Museum (one I haven't been to)

What would you want to see in Chicago?

I do love those city passes, but I kind of feel like they make you go see things you don't want to see. Then you don't go see things you do want to see.

Chicago will be a great city to visit indeed. We stopped by once. Bo will have his city tour to Jogjakarta, around 2 hours flight from Jakarta. He's so excited!

I like to visit The Bean. They had a great orchestra concert there free, last time we went. I also like the art institute; gorgeous place. I don't like deep dish pizza, but I would like to go into Willis Tower again. I toured the river on a boat and enjoyed it (architecture tour). The kids were bored though (gasp). I bet he will have a good time!! We sure like to visit Chicago.

I love Chicago. It's a second home to us, it seems. Of course, you have to get deep dish pizza and go to the museums. I like to walk down Michigan Ave and pop in a few shops sometimes when we go. Navy Pier is a favorite too.
