Buckets of Aspirations

Admit it - There's nothing better than tuning in to Jeopardy, and realizing it's Kids Week. I can buzz in circles around those little geeks.

#3 Travel to Atlanta, Georgia for the Gone With The Wind tour. I want a costumed guide. I want civil war reenactments. I want to learn how to make a green velvet dress out of curtains.
