"Mary, I am so happy! I, too, am a mother. Thank you for joining me in my petitions to your Divine Son, dear Mother of Happy Delivery. You were with me in my Bethlehem. Thank you. I know that you are with me now in my Nazareth. Thank you, Thank you." --Fr. A. Francis Coomes, S.J., the Mother's Manual

If you would like to be a part of this fantastic experience, then contact Cathy E. or Denise R. All contact information is in the directory.
The last field trip of the year was to the East Texas Gator Farm. They have real live Alligators from hatchlings to over 14 feet . The alligator enclosures have been designed to be as close to their natural habitat as possible. They have aquariums with fish, spiders, snakes, turtles, lizards, finch, parrots, and Prissy the Ferret. They also have a rehab permit that allows them to rescue baby raccoon, baby possums, and baby squirrels, so they nurture, love, and prepare them to be released back to the wild! It was a great day with picnic lunch and even some playtime despite the recent rains.
American Freedom Museum Field trip
Friday, April 17, 2015
by: Anne Marie G.
The Holy Hearts homeschool group visited a museum of American history in Bullard, TX to learn more about American freedom. Mrs. Bynum was a great tour guide. We went through the galleries that showed the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World War I, World War II, and the recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
During the tour we saw canons, guns and swords, clothes worn by the men and women soldiers, bags filled with supplies, and a display of what an actual trench looks like with the soldiers. Have you ever seen a uniform with 60 buttons? Did you know that George Washington had blonde hair? Holding the flag was not easy. Can you imagine playing the trumpet or the drum in the middle of a war? We got to experience how a plane felt like and how the soldiers jumped out of the plane during the war.
At the end of the tour, we had a scavenger hunt and shared something about the “treasures” we found. This museum is dedicated to the veterans and soldiers who fought for our American freedom – from being conquered, the fight within the states, freeing other countries from the enemy, ending slavery, and protecting our lands.
We thank Mrs. Bynum for a great tour of the museum. She was very good at telling the stories and fun facts about the veterans and presidents. I learned a lot and had fun too. Let’s pray and honor all the men and women who fought for our American freedom and those who are still fighting a war.
