You faithfully took us places every week. What fun we had together! John, Joan and I were no strangers to the Chicago museums, zoos, and landmarks. If a teacher asked who has been to such and such a place, my hand always shot up. None of my classmates had been to all the places you took us.

Sometimes we went further afield. Many times we went to the Carmelite monastery in Holy Hill, Wisconsin. We also went to The Dells and Dickeyville. Those trips made for a long day, and we'd be asleep by the time we made it home.
