The Christmas season is upon us. I’m so grateful for this time every year. It is nice to wind down after a busy year with the people we love most. Chris and I make gentle efforts to really enjoy all the hustle and bustle our city has to offer – there certainly is no shortage of [...]


Pinocchio at the The Chicago Children’s Theatre

4-23-17 chicago children's theatre2

Last weekend I took the two bigs (Evie and Mack) and the two middles (Vivian and Ben) to see “Pinocchio” at The Chicago Children’s Theatre. The company recently opened a beautiful new facility in the West Loop, where parking is plentiful and little shops, bakeries and cafes are all within walking distance. It was a [...]

Evie’s class celebrated Black History Month throughout February, and even though we are well into April the lessons keep coming. She worked on a big project about Rosa Parks for weeks, and the other day she presented it to her class. She was so PROUD to tell me that it went great! I’m glad her [...]

On Saturday [...]

Now that it is getting cooler here in the city, I am on the look out for fun indoor activities – we don’t want to be cooped up in the house all weekend! This morning I took Evie, Mack and Vivian to see Leo Lionni’s “Frederick,” a new musical at the Chicago Children’s Theatre. It [...]


The Very Hungry Caterpillar presented by The Chicago Children’s Theatre

“This is horrible,” Mack declared. We were sitting in a cozy theater watching the start of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” presented by The Chicago Children’s Theatre, and 4 year old Mack was not amused.  When I told him we were going to see a show, I think he assumed a movie. Thankfully, an announcement at [...]
