Less posting than usual lately due to the combo of holiday travel, and demands to tie up work projects before the end of the year. I spent Thanksgiving in Chicago with my husband's family, where a highlight was visiting the Museum of Science and Industry with my three-year-old nephew Avery. It was a tie as to who thought the visit was more magical - Avery was amazed by the fake snow (holiday exhibit) and the huge tractor he got to 'drive' in the farm exhibit. I was mesmerized by the Apollo 8 spacecraft in the Henry Crown Space Center. And we both though the Chick Hatchery in the genetics exhibit was pretty rockin', albeit for different reasons. This holiday, I was thankful that there are still places like the Museum that inspire wonder and curiosity...and that I haven't become jaded enough to be immune to their charms.
