  1. That's like three summer's worth of fun!! We are going to study Davy Crockett this year- I guess that might be a bit to far for a field trip.

  2. That looks like a magical summer. I wish Davy Crockett place had been open when we were traveling through Tennessee last spring, but we got there before tourist season, so it was closed for the year.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means so much.
