Lone Star Leadership Academy: Tuesday, June 12

Today’s morning went almost the exact same. We had today’s leadership group inside. Our skill today was teamwork which we discussed as well as other questions about Texas History which tied into the day’s events.

The first thing we did was visit the Institute of Texan Cultures.  The ITC has many exhibits of different cultural groups in Texas and what they brought to Texas to make it what it is now.

We then departed for Texas’ most historical landmark, The Alamo.  Originally named San Antonio de Valero, it housed missionaries trying to convert the natives.  The Alamo is one of my favorite sites to visit.  I have been there once before, but I was too young to remember it.

The first non-chain restaurant we ate at was called The Republic of Texas.  I had chicken, and it was good.

Afterward, we went to see the Witte Museum.  The Witte Museum is a children’s museum as well as a historic Texas museum.  We first went to the “Treehouse” which is the children’s section with hands-on activities.  Then, we had a tour of the actual museum.  They had just built a new building onto the museum less than a month ago.  We were among the first groups to take a tour.  The museum was great, and so was the tour guide.

I earned 23 Texas Tokens, now totaling 59 tokens.  When I get finished showering and getting ready for tomorrow, I had 12 minutes left.  I can’t wait for the Capitol and the Texas Legislature tomorrow.
