Day 55: Driving through Chicago at Night.

Our time in Wisconsin finally came to an end this morning as we packed up and left Cliffside Park. We had not anticipated spending this much time around Lake Michigan when we left California nearly 2 months ago but we are glad we did. Our original plan was to just head across from Denver to Kentucky but these changes in our plan tend to work out for the best.

Day 50: Spending the day at Kohler-Andrae State Park.

Every 20 or so school days, Ava has to have a meeting with her kindergarten teacher to check on her progress. Even though Marlene is doing the actual schooling, Ava has a teacher at the charter school she is enrolled in with this homeschooling program. Today is her first scheduled meeting with Teacher Stephanie and we came to a McDonald’s for lunch and to use their WiFi so she can have her meeting via Skype.

Day 46: Off to Chippewa Falls for the Leinenkugel Brewery tour.

Our visit to Minnesota ended this morning as we left Lebanon Hills campground and headed back on the road east towards Wisconsin. In the end, we were really glad to have spent our time in Lebanon Hills as the campground was one of the nicest we have ever been in. The electric only sites are actually nicer than the full hookup sites as they are much more private and have a lot more space. The newly renovated and heated bathrooms were also some of the nicest with free hot showers and heated floors.
