So, the 3 youngest and I spent Monday night on Wall St. Gail, Chloe and Ann are home from California. Tuesday we rode the South Shore to Chicago to spend the day at the Museum of Science and Industry. Funny how it seems different than it did when I was in school! Ann started an animal spelling game on the train. The game lasted the whole trip!! Did you know that there are a lot of animals that end in "n", "d" and "r" and not so many that start with those letters? Is an x-ray fish real?


  1. Were you doing the game in French or English or both? Although it seems to me you might have the same problem in French! :-) Russian anyone?

  2. English for the animals, except for the ones we made up and tried to pass off as real. We were playing with a 6, 8, 10, and 13 yr old! Although, when we went to people names on the way home, we had to use French names if they began with "y".
