Indiana: Here We Come! (By the Way)
Alex was assigned to write an Indiana state report. The assignment got easier and actually became a lot of fun when his family decided to visit their cousins for Thanksgiving. Wow, there were so many interesting things to learn and see. From covered bridges, Abe Lincoln's old homestead, the Santa Claus village, fish farms, limestone quarries, to some of the best cooking on planet earth. And then there were the animals which kept things "interesting!" Caves with bats, fields with deer, mice in the barn, beautiful birds seemed to be everywhere. Indianan's are proud of their state for many reasons, but nearly everyone will agree, they are most thankful for their family and friends.
