A low Key Day in the Windy City.
Today was our second and last day at Little Black Pearl. Since we work so fast, there was not much for us to do. Some of us did did some paper work for Ms. Moody, others made phone calls about the summer program. Some of us also cleaned windows. Then we got the opportunity to work with the after school program. We were divided into three different groups: Ceramics, Multimedia, and Music. In these classrooms we mostly just observed. Those of us in the ceramic room got to work with the clay: a giraffe and two bowls were made. Then after dinner we broke off and did our own thing. A group of use decided to walk down to the Navy Peir. We got to see a wonderful view of the City (see below)
