Galveston Field Trip

We had an amazing field trip to Galveston with our homeschool group.  We went to the beach, where the kids played in the sand, jumped in the huge waves, and had a sandy picnic (the sand was everywhere!).  Then we headed to the sea turtle research facility and learned about sea turtles in the Gulf of Mexico and got an up-close look at the sea turtles.  After that, it was off for a ferry ride to Boliver Island and back, and then to supper at the incredible Rainforest Cafe.  It was one of our most favorite days and we were once again overwhelmed with what a blessing it is to homeschool with so many incredible families.

Dawson thrilled to be playing in the waves.

Brady was perfectly content to play in the sand.

Brady really liked the little sea turtles.

They were so cute!!!
