  • "Hey Chicago, what do you say?  The Cubs are going to win today!  Go, Cubs, go!" Now, as I am reading this to myself, I am thinking two words, Youth Works.   Numerous memories came to mind.  Chicago, Illinois, kids, youth, helping hands, and support.  Yes, I know Chicago is not what people would...

  • My Disney vacation began in August of 2007 when my Mom convinced my Dad to finally take us to Disney World.  My cousin Abby was able to go so that I would have a buddy while my little sisters friend alexis and her mom and dad went so that Katie would have someone to pal with.  The adventure...
