Children are naturally drawn to great adventure and outdoor learning experiences, especially when it involves friendly animals trained to interact with them! Our Community-Based Instruction (CBI) class took a field trip this week with other classes to the beautiful Paws for Reflection Ranch in Midlothian (www.pawsforreflectionranch.org). The Ranch plans specific programs and experiences to meet a variety of individual learning needs including hands-on time with animals, creative arts and crafts, team-building activities, nature walks, picnics, and a day of extraordinary fun!
. . . and there’s nothing like a hayride on a beautiful sunny autumn afternoon to close out a day filled with fun, friends, fellowship, and fond fall memories. Here’s hoping we all take time to pause for fun and reflection soon!
