We spent the long weekend in Chicago (by way of Louisville, Cincinnati, and Knoxville). Though I've said it many times before, traveling gives us new eyes - and these students have experienced much.
From dinosaur fossils, and the man eating lions of Tsavo, to the enormity of the Willis Tower, to the Institute of Art (where they saw the works of Picasso, Monet, Caravaggio, Warhol, and Pollock), to the Blue Man Group performance, to an architectural tour of Chicago by boat, and (of course) a Chicago Fire soccer match - these students will hopefully have their eyes open a bit wider from henceforth.
I love to learn new things. I love to teach. I love to travel. And I love these kids.
I hope they learned as much as I did.
