Literature Meets Life

Sometimes you read a book aloud and it just sticks.

Last summer we read 7 Seven Riddles to Nowhere, by A. J. Cattapan aloud as a family. It was a book that everyone, including Daddy, enjoyed!  As we approached the final reveal to the mystery of the 7 riddles, the boys spent several car rides debating the solution.  We finished the book aloud on the front porch with ice cream cones.

It was every bit as idealistic as it sounds.

Almost immediately the kids began planning a trip to see all of the Chicago churches visited by the kids in the book.  When Dad had a work trip to Chicago earlier this month, we decided to take advantage and extend it into the weekend as a family to give ourselves a self-guided tour. 

I could spend a post on every church and not share everything we saw, but here are the highlights!
