Weather has been terrible here in Chicago. Yesterday, I faced my first tornado watch with lightning and thunder pounding the city. Today, off and on rain with more thunder this evening. Very crazy weather.

However, even with the weather, I managed to sneak out of the hotel and visit a couple of stores...including the Candy store. After tasting some yummy treats (sorry no golden tickets in this candy), I was able to visit the Disney store and the Apple store (of course).

Today, after our breakfast meetings, I was able to swing by Bentley Gold Cost. Oh, yea the cars were awesome!

Which car is your favorite?

I have to run and catch another meeting in a few minutes, but wanted to check in. I leave tomorrow morning. Until then...

God Bless,

Meetings...Meetings...Meetings, Today was a day of meetings. The only thing I got to see in Chicago was this statue of a man holding an umbrella waving at a taxi. Lots and lots of meetings. Tomorrow, the conference begins and I will be able to sit in more meetings, meetings and more meetings.

Not much to report today except that I went to lots of meetings, meetings and more meetings. I think you get the picture.

Tell mom and Moose hi! Hope everything is going well and I miss you!

God Bless,

Greetings again from Chicago. I love this city! Lots to do, good food, nice people, and wonderful atmosphere. Tell mom, I saw lots of "nice buildings".

Today, we left Fresno at 7:30 and flew to Dallas, Texas. From Texas we flew to Chicago, Illinois. We then took a taxi to our hotel and I went to dinner. It was great. After dinner, my group went to the top of the John Hancock building. It is the second tallest building in Chicago. The picture to the left is me in my room and a stick that was in my drink. The "drink stick" is an image of the building that we were in. We had a drink on the 96th floor of this building. That is 96 of your schools stacked on top of each other...a long way up.

Tomorrow, I have a meeting where we will talk about apples. Have a good day and be good in school. Keep reading your books and fill out your journal. Give Moose and mommy a big hug for me!

God Bless,
