March 2nd was Texas Independence Day! Knowing we had a trip planned to San Antonio I decided to capitalize on both and strayed a little from our normal curriculum to do a study of Texas history!
The kids had fun learning about The Texas Lone Star Flag, our state bird, and flower!
We also checked out some great books from the library and had fun
learning about heros like Davy Crockett!
The girls really enjoyed learning about the Alamo, but there is nothing like seeing the real thing in person! Isa was especially ecstatic when she spotted Old Betsy, Crockett's rifle on display. I of course enjoyed seeing them ooh and ahh as they connected the events we had been learning about.
Here are the girls having fun shooting their own pics with their cameras!
