Leaving Chicago and Mom visits!

More photos of mom's visit have been added!

Sunday, Sept. 4th:

So, I've been a little slow on getting posts up...oops.
On my last day in Chicago, we had a bbq complete with KFC, duh, and some good nephew, friends and family time! Henry, while curious about the big ball spitting out freezing water, was a little too intimidated by it to actually play. However, he was still ADORABLE in his swimwear! As usual. It's always hard to say goodbye at the end of the summer, but it was great having so many good friends help send me (and mom) off in style!

Then, mom came to visit, see the house, and help me get my classroom back together for two whole weeks! Besides putting up bulletin boards, we also managed to get out of town and do a mini safari. The lodge, Kiangazi, was rustic and colonial...aka, mom LOVED it. The two weeks flew by, and mom sadly had to head back home.

Kitengela Glass Factory: a little taste of crazy in Nairobi. Mom was really great at helping me find things to buy! And, Matt and Becky joined us since they had BOXES of glass (wine anyone?) to drop off.

Our room at Kiangazi and there's a honey badger on the list of animals we might spot on safari! No way!
