On Friday, March 18, Horizon Academy students, parents, teachers, family members and friends made the most of the beautiful Easter weather by loading up two chartered catamarans with about 300 people and heading off to Goff's Caye. The whole school usually has at least one Field Trip Day for each school year, and last year (March 2015), we decided to spend the day together. That experience was such a resounding success, that we planned another caye trip this year. 

The day was sunny and breezy, perfect for a day on the beach. Our families snorkeled and swam, laughed and chatted, and enjoyed their snacks and each other's company in a welcome change from the busy-ness of a usual Friday in the city. 

Events like this remind us of how blessed we are to live in our beautiful Belize and to be able to make such precious memories with our children and their friends. Thanks to all of you who came along for the day, and to everyone who helped to make the trip such a lovely reality.
