Here are a few pics I took from our yearly class field trip. This year: Cattleman's Ranch in West Texas
A peacock whose colors I couldn't quite catch (wish he would have come a bit closer...)
A Longhorn Relaxing in the Sun
Covered Wagon Ride
Pioneer Home (tour guides explained to the students that people would put valuables up on the roofs, so that bandits wouldn't get to them so easily)
Wondrous Mountain Side
A Helicopter and Car from the movie, Courage Under Fire (many of its scenes were shot at this ranch)
The students very much enjoyed the trip. We had some big, juicy burgers cooked up for us after the tour, and the students were able to go play on a handmade wooden playground afterwards. It was crazy hot, but we managed to get some water in us and enjoy ourselves.
