Your life is not lying in wait in the future like a wild animal or some ominous destiny. Nor is it hidden in the heavens, like a paradise or promise. Nor is it shut up in the cave or the prison of your past. It is here and now; it is what you live and what you do. At the heart of being; at the heart of the present; at the heart of everything – in the great current of life, of reality.

~Abraham Lincoln~

My dad and I took the girls on an Abraham Lincoln field trip a few weeks ago. We started the trip by visiting Lincoln's New Salem State Historic Site where Abe Lincoln lived for some years as a young adult. Then we headed to Springfield to see Lincoln's home. We spent the night at a hotel and the girls had fun swimming and using the hot tub. The next day we went to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum, the old Union Station, Lincoln's Tomb and we drove by the current State Capital building and the Old State Capital building. We all had a wonderful time and the girls talked about the trip for days after we got home!
