Castillo De San Marcos

We had a field trip to St. Augustine today. Our friends the Troisi's who are also doing FLVA drove up from Palm Bay so put some flesh on our recent history lessons. We went through the Junior Ranger program at the fort and all the kids got their badges and then we saw the cannons are they loud. One of the re-en actors told us those cannons can shoot accurately up to 3 and 1/2 miles. Elise spent the day with Gramma making cookies and keeping busy so to keep out of trouble.

great photos.
looks like you all had a wonderful day...with wonderful weather.
that is definitely a homeschooling perk...
the 4th graders in leon county go to st. augustine, but it is a VERY rushed day! sounds like you had a relaxed day.
