excursion a huesca

last thursday i got to go on a field trip with the 6th graders at Pedro Primero. we went to the nearby town of huesca and saw a gothic cathedral, a roman church and a museum exhibit about a bunch of pre human skeletons that were found in a cave nearby. these two sixth grade classes are probably my favorite out of all of my classes, so it was a lot of fun to get to spend more time with them outside of class. I spent most of the day with Pili, one of the 6th grade teachers, and she was super sweet. She started to get motion sickness on the bus on the way there, and i really thought she was going to throw up in the seat next to me. then later on when we were at the museum another girl started to feel sick and almost passed out, so Pili stayed with the girl and I had to take the whole class back down the street to meet up with the other group. I did not feel old enough to be leading twenty 11 years olds down a crowded street. Hopefully they couldn't tell what i was thinking, but i kinda think some of them knew I wasn't too confident. haha. it was a fun day and i really enjoyed seeing the two churches because in oxford we talked a lot about the differences between gothic and roman architecture.

tomorrow morning at 6:50 i'm getting on a bus to barcelona and at 10:05 tomorrow night i will arrive in oxford!! i am suuuuper excited and even though its going to be a long day of traveling i know it will be worth it. i'll post pictures when i get back!
