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.

That’s awesome! I did a series on the 10 things…article and am trying to be more purposeful about the things they suggest too! I’m sure my son would love that train garden…how clever! Thanks for linking up to Trivium Tuesdays!
