I hope your Valentine's Day was perfect!
Here in California, learning about missions is part of the
public school 4th grade curriculum.
There were 21 in all, and while not the most famous now,
Mission San Luis Rey stands out as one of the most beautiful.
|Yes, that is an elbow on the right :-)|
If you're a homeschooling family...you can make visiting them part of a
family vacation, and call it "History" :-)
Learning and traveling go hand in hand, don't they?
Mission San Luis Rey was the largest of the missions,
and originally had over 950,000 acres.

Do you want to know another wonderful part about visiting missions?
Most of them are pretty close to this :-)
