This trip has been very fun. Visiting Goliad was awesome. The aquarium was great! The USS Lexington was the best part. Another favorite part was being with friends.
Brett, Spencer, and Cullen
Our favorite parts were the USS Lexington and the aquarium. Our favorite part of the ship was the flight simulator and sitting in the plane. Our favorite part about the aquarium was petting the sharks and stingrays and looking at the turtles. The trip has been fun so far.

Today was awesome! We went to see the Alamo and touch a piece of history (like Dr. Who 🙂 Then we went to many malls and museums – Cool!
We enjoyed a busy first day of Adventure Week with stops in Waco and Austin before arriving in San Antonio. Waco is the official home of the Texas Rangers which we all learned originally ranged across the Texas frontier to protect settlers from attacks from Native Americans. Although a few people were a little disappointed that it was not a baseball museum, we all were amazed at the collection of weaponry and the feats of the Rangers throughout our history.
In Austin, we visited the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum and watched “The Story of Texas.” The new exhibit about the raising of the shipwrecked La Belle was exciting to see along with the regular exhibits. The afternoon continued with a visit to the Capitol Visitor’s Center and the Texas Capitol building. We finished our day with dinner at Chili’s where we heard more than once how polite our students are.
It was an amazing first day and we are excited to see what adventures day 2 will
