Lamplighter fourth graders recently recorded a song with Texas musician and songwriter Jimmy LaFave during a trip to Austin.

During the “seniors” trip to explore the Capitol and other historical sites, they were able to record “This land is you land” in LaFave’s studio, take a tour of the University of Texas’s Blanton Museum of Art, and visit the governor’s office.

Apparently,  while on the tour they impressed the docents by discussing the color of one of the paintings and “how the first immigrants to Texas evolved as citizens.”

Students were also able to visit Gov. Rick Perry’s office, though ironically he was in Dallas at the time for the Bush Library opening.
