Sixth grade kindly invited us to tag along on their trip to the state capitol and the governor's mansion.
Brock, David, Tyesha, Breanna, Jacob stand beside a statue called "The Guardian". Yahola, Louie, Dilln and the rest of the class rest on the 'grand staircase" of the capitol. The marble staircase is gorgeous.
Did I fail to mention that it was also "Bedlalm" day at Butner? Most of the kids wore their teams' colors. Tyesha even wore OU on her face!
Our tour guide explains the symbolism of the great seal of Oklahoma. Fascinating!

Brock had a great idea. Take a photo from the governor's lawn with the capitol building and flag in the background.
