Mark Twain with a little St. Louis thrown in: Part I, by Asher

So we took our first field trip of the new school year.  To Missouri.  This was back at the beginning of September.  We went with Nana and Papa and met up with the African cousins and aunt and uncle.  Really it was a family vacation, but mom loves it when we can do some learning too.   So we started our school year researching Missouri and reading about Mark Twain and watching Tom Sawyer/Huck Finn movies.

One day we went to the Mark Twain Museum. It was a lot of fun there.   My cousin Clay and I went around the museum trying to avoid his younger brothers, James and Samuel.

Avy and Grace just went around and looked at the exhibits and took notes.

Another day we went to the Mark Twain Cave. There were over 50 trails inside it that were 6 miles long. We went on a tour on a few of the trails.

All of the cousins had a great time with each other.

And are ready to have another great time together down the river.
