On a cold, fall afternoon, the class all gathered into a small yellow short bus and headed out for Springton Manor. At around 1:45 the bus arrived at the Manor, giving the students 45 minutes to gather photos. The air was crisp and ripe with potential. The animals were let out and they grazed in the fields to the delight of the students. After a good amount of pictures were taken, they gathered back into the bus and off to the school.
