Branson outing

Brianna has been singing "I Won't Grow Up" from Peter Pan for voice lessons and her teacher recommended taking her to see the production in Branson. So Mom and Tim took me and her to Branson to see it! We all loved it :) But just as interesting was our visit at The College of the Ozarks....nicknamed Hard Work U.

As of right now she's proclaimed this is where she wants to go to college and we're all for it!
The philosophy of the college is so neat and most students get the opportunity to work in their field during school. The university has a bakery, hospital, their own dairy and much more. Either all or most of their students work throughout the school year (at the university, in some area) during the school year and some work throughout the summer to pay their room and board. I think it's such a neat way to give them experiance and teach them a good work ethic! Anyway, here's our mini visit to the milking station.

And Brianna getting autographs after the show :)

What a neat concept! I'll have to look into this one as Michael gets older; that hands-on stuff would make him so, so happy. I can't believe you're already having to start thinking about these things. It doesn't seem that long ago that she was Michael's age!
