Family Weekend coming up
9
Thu, 08-25-2011 - 8:48am

Tomorrow dh and I are headed up to the Chicago area for Loyola's med school family weekend. We'll go a bit early and check into our hotel. There is a reception and optional tour from 5-7 tomorrow. We've already done the tour when we visited in April so we'll probably opt out of that and take Jason to dinner. Saturday morning is a family mass (it's a Jesuit school) followed by the white coat ceremony followed by a luncheon. We'll head home after that and Jason is coming down for the night; there's a UFC pay per view that night, which we'll have 10-12 people over for, so I'll have to hit the ground running when I get home to get ready for that! I'll post a picture next week if I can get a decent one at the white coat ceremony!

I forgot you were in the Chicago area! Stritch School of Medicine is in Maywood and Jason is renting a small house within a mile of the school in North Riverside. In a few weeks my sister and I are driving up to Wheaton to visit an elderly aunt - you probably know where all those places are!

I know right where that VA is! I think the 3rd year students do rotations there. And we looked at a couple apartments in Oak Park and I'm pretty sure the leasing agency guy took us to the area with the houses you're talking about.

I've seen signs for all of those places - S's ex-DW C went to college in Deerfield, and we would go to restaurants or shopping in various places when N and I went to visit her, usually once a semester.
