Our granddaughter Lia is currently in the fourth grade and is studying California Missions. Her brother Tyler is a high school sophomore who has been receiving lots of inquiries from colleges all over the country because of his recent high PSAT score and has become interested in visiting college campuses. So a couple of Fridays ago when they had no school because of a staff development day in Castro Valley we decided to spend most of the day visiting Mission Santa Clara which is less than an hour away from our Crow Canyon home and just happens to be located in the middle of a college campus.
