......seeing the Sights. The Chicago sights, that is.
Today we went to the Chicago Botanic Gardens.
Ginger is officially a toddler now. No stroller can contain her.
Eleanor fancies herself a leader, of course. Map in hand, ready for kindergarten I dare say.
This is my little piece of heaven. Watching happy girls play.
And looking at flowers through their eyes.
I mean, what's cooler than a spiderweb with water droplets on it?
Okay, maybe a fountain in the middle of a lake.
And the way they grow their cherry trees! Too cool!
So....all this to say that I got through phases--do you? I'll go through a few weeks of so much creating that I have a backlog of blog posts. And then I have weeks where I can't motivate. I just don't feel like it. Then I read all of these blogs and they are constantly creating and I think to myself, don't they have these days like I do? Don't they just feel like sitting on the couch watching Rio with their kids? (Which, incidentally, is exactly what I'm doing as I type.)
Anyway, next week we're headed east for a big family event and after that, I think I'll get my mojo back. Because after that......SCHOOL STARTS. And then, that means I really live in Chicago. I'm not just on a permanent vacation.
