The Giant Turtle

Meet one of my earliest Childhood memories!

THE Giant Turtle
I was surprised when we went down to do some interviews in Nebraska with the amount of detail I remembered about my early childhood home in Village Green. I knew exactly where the "big hill" was but I have to admit, I was a little disappointed to discover the reality of my memories...

Not so Giant now are you?

Other than the disappointment of not seeing a seven foot tall giant concrete turtle the trip was a success. We save a bit of money staying with friends (thanks Davis') and at the "Economy Lodge" (what a dump...never stay there).

Interviews went well and I think I could be happy at either school. (He did so well on his interviews. We loved both schools and had a great time in Nebraska).

I remember the shock and disappointment of the "giant" turtle when we were there last year. For me the worst was the tiny STOP signs. It snowed so much when we were kids that we could reach the top of the signs, too bad they are only 4 feet tall:(

I love the pictures!! We sure hope you come here to Omaha, but Lincoln isn't too far either. Keep us posted on how things go.

Isn't it crazy how things change when you grow up... Good luck on the school adventures!

Isn't funny how things tend to be a little smaller than we remember looking back...things, ideas, situations, even problems...we learn and grow and always get a new perspective...

Yes Econo Lodge...I would highly recommend at least the Hampton Inn or something similar...I can't stand the cardboard beds...at least the feather beds w/ Hampton Inn are fairly nice...
