It's the time for field trips, right? The Keller family took a field trip last weekend to Springfield, Illinois where we stepped back in time to experience the life and times of Abraham Lincoln. If you haven't been, we can recommend the highly entertaining Lincoln Museum. Totally new, it is a state of the art tribute to a man who was viciously maligned in the media during his lifetime. It was only until his death that people began to see him as the saviour of our country. Also not to be missed is the Dana Thomas house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Here are some pictures.
