My Current Giveaways

Keep watching--more coming soon!

We had the opportunity to visit Boys Town when Grandpa & Grandma were here at Thanksgiving. It is a unique place with a lot of history. It is now called Girls and Boys Town.

They have some fun stuff including the world's largest ball of stamps. The kids had fun seeing all the stamps in the ball and the stamp artwork.

There is a special process they use to make the statues in the museum. They are so lifelike because of the way the cloth folds around the body. Hard to explain, but wow--check out those statues!

When we were done in the museum, we headed outside where Rebekah was fighting me for control of my camera. We got this picture of the sky--which looks quite lovely considering the yelling and screaming going on. Then we got a family photo (minus Grandma) at the famous He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother statue.

I'm so glad we took time to drive to Boys Town and visit. I had gone when I was really young, but it was fascinating to see it now that I'm grown up.

It was Boys Town, and then Girls & Boys Town, and now it's back to being just Boys Town. Keith still works there and loves it.
