we had a schedule and lesson plan.
But... a friend needed a Diet Sierra Mist and hugs.
We did our Math and Bible,
and headed to the hospital
(with a Diet soda)
for that friend.
That in itself is a lesson no textbook can teach: people are more important than any lesson plan.
Just a few block away from the hospital is the Illinois State Museum in Springfield. I had not been in almost 20 years. The website is poor so I was a bit uncertain what to expect. It is small but very nicely done, easy to get to, and FREE.

|Dressing a "display" like is it 1910|
