Woo hoo!!! :) :) :)

I finally got this lap top's system figured out and can share photos!!!
I am positively ecstatic!!!!!!!!!!!! You have no idea just how happy and excited I am!!!
The above photo is our family at the Lincoln Museum in Springfield, Illinois. We had fun learning more about Lincoln and his family this past Memorial Day by visiting New Salem and Springfield, Illinois.
Richard and I could have done much more, but children can only absorb a certain amount of History.... :) :) :)
While immersing ourselves in U.S. History, someone backed into our family minivan in the motel's parking lot!! Richard was sitting inside the van at the time, the "thump" taking him by surprise. The good thing is that there are only two very large dents (quite noticeable) in the back of our van.
The photo below was taken at New Salem, Illinois. Did you know that Lincoln had been a land surveyor for several years as a young adult? He tried several different occupations before settling on Law.
If you appreciate history and find yourself in the middle of Illinois, consider visiting Springfield and surrounding small historic towns. The only thing you'll regret is not having enough time to see everything.

So happy for you that you uploaded pics on your blog! This sounds so interesting about New Salem, Illinois. You'll have to tell me more about it sometime. I think our family would really enjoy this also. :)
