I spent the day taking a bus load of art students to The Field Museum in Chicago. We had 3 buses and I was supposed to supervise my bus with Joe, but he could not make it. He had a great excuse. His wife just had a baby this week and he couldn't be away from 7am to 8pm. I had to hire someone to let Balt out after school since I knew he certainly could wait until I got home. It does make for a very long day but the kids love it. I think I took the my girls to the Field Museum with friends when Monika was a baby and Erika was 5, but I have no memory of actually being inside. Of course all of the exhibits would be different by now anyway. I got lost in the Ancient Americas exhibit. Jessi called me at some point while I was wondering around and I found a nice bench to enjoy a chat with her. We were only able to stay 3 hours at the museum in order to get home at a descent hour and to stop at Portillo's for dinner. Even though about half of my bus was filled with freshman, no one got lost or caused any trouble. No one was even late to the bus! I brought the 3 Hunger Games movies for the kids to watch on the way there and back and we got through them all. Now I'm ready to catch the 4th installment that opened tonight. I'm hoping Erika will treat me.
