As part of following Teaching the Trivium’s “Ten Things to Do Before Age 10”, we try to go on a neat field trip every month. Last month we went to the wonderful Chicago Botanic Gardens (which is not in Chicago–yeah! I don’t like to drive there.)
Admission is free, but parking is fairly expensive, especially for our big van. But I found out that we get free parking due to my husband’s work! So, we’ll be making trips to this beautiful place more often now.
