Milwaukee… and then the Home Stretch

We took a trip to Milwaukee for a fun getaway over the 4th of July holiday.The students went to SummerFest, a huge music festival on Lake Michigan, went to a Brewers game, and to the Jelly Belly factory. We topped off the drive back to Eau Claire with some fine cuisine and shopping at Cracker Barrel. And the narrative would not be complete without an account of Terrence and Bri's interesting trip to Taco Bell! Let's leave it at that….

The students probably did other stuff unknown to Professor Ankrom.


This is likely the last blog post for our group. In the remaining four days, we have to get the "deliverables" to supervisors, complete any remaining tasks and hand off projects that will be taken over by city and county staff after we leave. 

The chemistry among the group has been quite good, socially and professionally. But I am pretty sure they are ready to return to family anf friends and dear old Wittenberg.
