All Aboard the North Pole Express!

Our home school group had our first holiday field trip of the season. We took a ride on the North Pole Express. The Grapevine Vintage Railroad has a one our trip through Cowtown and we took 86 home school kids yesterday. The weather was cold and rainy but we had a great time. Hubby joined us and took pictures. Here are a few...

The train ready to board.

Singing Santa Claus is Coming to Town...

A visit from the jolly old fat man himself!

All warm and snug in the their jammies...

This picture cracks me up...they look like they are plotting and planning don't they?

Right now it is snowing in Cowtown and I am debating whether I should wake up my daughter.  It is snowing heavily but not sticking to anything but the grass...pretty though!  I better wake her up because a discussion of why the snow falling but not sticking would surely count as science right?

Today we are off on another field trip to Casa Manana to see Santa Claus is Coming to Town, lunch at Central Market and church this evening...will be a full day!
