Are We There Yet?
Spring is in the air — for now — and family events are sprouting up all over! On this three-day Presidents weekend, go outside to count some birds, indulge your young artist, celebrate the Spurlock Museum’s 100th anniversary, let your kids explore a “dangerous” book, or take in some music, dance and children’s theater.
I guess I was wrong about the snow-preventing properties of our new snowblower.
I figured shelling out a couple hundred bucks on our “Snowjoe” was enough to keep Champaign-Urbana snow-free for the rest of the winter. Not so. Apologies for my optimism.
It arrived in the middle of our last snowstorm in mid-January, and excitement was high.
Let me start by admitting this up front: I have not always been a cat person.
I come from a long line of dog people -- dog people who believe that dogs are pets and not necessarily members of the family in equal standing to, say, a newborn.
Do your kids like history, or have an artistic streak? They may want to try their hand at an art contest honoring Champaign's sesquicentennial.
Youths from preschool through high school who live in Champaign are invited to enter the contest recognizing Champaign’s 150 years of existence.
Let’s say good-bye to January with an eclectic mix of activities this weekend. Pack the Hall for a free UI women's game or enjoy music, dance, donkey basketball (whatever) and maybe some prom-dress shopping? Plus, get helpful information about preparing your little one for kindergarten!
