This is Becky writing, because Penny isn’t here, she has left on a new trip!
The last I heard from her was when she was traveling through Illinois. She was passing through Abraham Lincoln Country where so many things there are named after that famous President of the United States.
Penny was heading toward the big city of St. Louis where she would be crossing the Mississippi River.
This is not really the car she is traveling in, but this is Penny’s little copper music box car from home.
I took these pictures on our driveway to show you how the farm looks now without much snow. The grass is flat and brown, but the birds are busy singing the arrival of spring! I wish you could hear them sing so joyfully. The snow is melting away and there is mud everywhere. I wonder how much greener the farm will be when Penny returns? I can’t wait to hear about her newest adventure!!
