Chicago was beautiful, with unseasonable warm (for Chicago) spring weather and tulips blooming everywhere! The group of students I accompanied came from Clinton, Missouri. They and their band director were very nice.

We visited the Hancock Building, Navy Pier, Field Museum, Shedd's Aquarium, Magnificent Mile, took the Untouchables Gangster Tour, saw the Blue Man Show, and ate at Ed Debevic's and Eduardo's Pizza. All this in THREE days, whew! Each night the kids got back to the hotel and swam in the pool until 11PM. They never ran out of energy.

Needless to say, it was a great week for being a tour guide!

After the tour, I went to Mark's sister Bonnie's house and visited the family for two days. Bonnie is a librarian in an elementary school and I went to work with her both days. Because it is so quiet there, I fought sleep the whole time. Still we enjoyed visiting. Clay's birthday was on Monday and we all went out for Mexican food to celebrate.
