Hanging out in Elk Grove Village, IL

We were supposed to go to Legoland today. When I looked more closely, our coupon was for "after 3 pm" only, and we would have needed to pick Matt up from work by 5, so we didn't end up going. We've been once before and, with as much time as we spend in this part of Chicago, we know we'll get a chance to go again, but I still felt bad about messing up our plans. The kids handled it much better. This morning we hung out in our hotel room drawing, playing Uno, and reading. We walked over to Quiznos for lunch and then went to the pool/exercise rooms. Riley has started the Couch to 5 K running program that I've been doing, so he went ahead and did week1, day 2 on the treadmill. After that, everyone went swimming. Maya loves floating around underwater in her goggles just watching the water moving. She learned, by accident at first, to do underwater front and back flips today and was so excited about that! Seth's learning to swim a bit but still doesn't like water in his face or ears at all!

When Matt gets home from work, we're going to eat and then to the Lego store. Also need to find some crickets to feed Riley's gecko and replace her warming light. The bulb went out as soon as we got here, so we've been keeping our hotel room very warm. Tomorrow afternoon we head to Columbus, OH and the kids & I will be going to COSI there on Thursday. After that, we head to FLORIDA!!!

I'm trying to learn as much as possible from other unschoolers, as we're planning on unschooling our baby boy. Looking forward to reading more. Thanks!
