Good News!

So far, Libby has had her pre-screening material approved everywhere she has applied (still waiting for one, which had a later date)! Now the audition dates are coming in, and all looks well, except for one three-way knot of potential dates conflicting with an orchestra concert. I hear the schools are in heavy consultation to provide ample time for auditioners (is that a word?) to get from Philadelphia back to NYC for the concert. I'm glad that this is not my headache...but I would not want Libby to have the last time slot that day with only an hour or two to get back. These things are stressful enough.

Meanwhile, anyone in the Cleveland area have ideas for fun things to do with an 11 and a 14 yo for a day (a Monday in February)?

Congratulations for Libby on this step in the process!

Well, since you ASKED.... ;)

The museums at University Circle are lovely, though I believe most are closed on Monday. The Great Lakes Science Center ( is downtown. It is lots of fun! I am fairly certain there is a chocolate exhibit coming in February. You can also catch an IMAX movie there.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is next door to the science center if you or the kids are interested. I went once but am not much of a Rock and Roll-er (though Janis Joplin's car was pretty neat).

There is an excellent bookstore called Loganberry Books if you are in the mood to shop.

If you'd like to spend the day outdoors, we have an amazing public park system that you can peruse at Great hiking trails, nature centers, etc.

Anyhow, if I know what you are looking for, I can help some more. We would love to meet you if you are in for a day! :)
