Prairie Days June 2011

We spent last Sunday after church at Armand Bayou Prairie Days.. in history we have recently began studying the westward expansion and the life and times of settlers and pioneers.  This prairie days fit perfectly into what we are studying and we couldn't pass up attending!

We took a wagon ride around the prairie grass lands at Armand Bayou.  On our tour we had a biologist who is so good at his job he has a prairie in League City named after him!

We also got to see the buffaloes!  We of course had already studied buffaloes in science (not this past year but the year before) and the kids remembered many facts about Buffalo and ruminants (animals with four stomachs)  I was very excited!  Home school moms get GREAT satisfaction when they SEE the product of their work!
