Have you been following Donna Aviles on her blog while she's hippity-hoppin' 'cross Kansas? What a time she's having. I had to chuckle the other night when I read about possible tornadoes and baseball-sized hail. Coming from Delaware, that must be quite a shock to her.
Donna does seem to be enjoying her time in Kansas, though. The stories and pictures she has posted on her blog have been a lot of fun to read. I especially enjoyed the fact that, after years of visiting schools and sharing her knowledge of Orphan Trains and Baby Trains, she met a young man named Eli who was able to answer a question that no one has ever been able to answer, before. Sounds to me as if Eli is a pretty smart kid. Go, Eli!
After reading all the fun posts from her first week in Kansas, I'm looking forward to learning what other kinds of fun Donna can find. For sure, she's gonna' wanna' have a nice, loooooooong rest, when she gets back home. She'll certainly deserve it, after all the hard work and effort of this trip. Hang in there, Donna. You're doin' a great job.
If you haven't found your way to Donna's Orphan Train History site, already, I do hope you'll take a few minutes to run on over there and check it out and become a follower. Its well-worth the reading time. Until the next time, keep a hug on.
