I recently got to go to Chicago with my honey... kid free!!! My in laws came to town the same week that my dh had a conference in Chicago and so we arranged for me to go to Chicago too. It was so much fun! The food we ate was fabulous. The weather was wonderful. It was so great for me to just wander around the city by myself while dh was at his conference and the time I got to spend with him made it like a 4 day long date.
I love homeschooling, but some times I just need to get away and be a regular adult with no kids to deal with. The trip came at a good time, too. I now feel (mostly) ready to start "school" on Monday.
Here are some pics from the trip.
