Buddy Bison is the Teacher’s Pet

Buddy Bison went on a trip to Florida with third-grade Bullis School (MD) teacher, Mrs. Cohen and her husband. Here’s what he had to say:

“I had a wonderful time with Mr. and Mrs. Cohen at Fort Desoto Park. The beach was sugary white and so soft when I put my feet in it. I also saw lots of different types of birds. They seemed a little confused about who I was, but didn't bother me. The water was a beautiful shade of aqua, but I was afraid to get wet so I remained on the beach blanket and tanned.

This park has a large fort from many years ago. It was cool to see a fort near a beach and palm trees. I can't wait to take another trip. Ah the great outdoors!!”
