Are We There Yet?
The big event this weekend is the University of Illinois Commencement, of course, but if your kids don’t feel like sitting through a graduation ceremony you can listen to music, watch a rocket launch or get outside to run, play or canoe!
When my kids were very young, they had big dreams.
My son wanted to be a baseball player. Or a basketball player, depending on the season.
My daughter was an interesting mix. Her choices ranged from ballerina-princess to machine-maker.
We’ve got an egg-stra big weekend of activities, with more Easter egg hunts than you can possibly attend. Plus Thomas the Tank Engine, “Toy Story” and (free!) Illini spring football. So get hoppin’!
Let’s start with the egg hunts:
— Eggstravaganza! 11 a.m. Saturday, West Side Park, Champaign. Free.
