Sean, Our Famous Young Friend

Our friend Sean was on the front page of our local newspaper two days before Christmas. Pretty cool, huh? He is quite the terrific young man, and we were delighted to see this article, all about how he is such a railroad buff. For a youngster, he already knows a good deal more about the railroad's history than most adults! Since my husband happens to be one of the local railroad experts around these parts, he and Sean have quite a lot to talk about when they get together!
Sean is a regular down at Railtown 1897 State Park in Jamestown, and he was also on PBS in an episode of Huell Howser's "California's Gold" program just last month. I'd say he's had a pretty good year. We are all very proud of him, and I don't know if it gets much cooler than being front page news when you're eleven!

Not sure about you - but I wasn't ever on the front page when I was his age!
Way to go, Sean!
