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
