We saw lots and lots of farmland.
And we went over a very, very narrow bridge. This is what we saw outside the window, Yikes! The lake was beautiful though.
At the Nature Center we learned about different kinds of owls native to the area.
At the Homeplace, a historic pioneer village, we watched some blacksmithing in action!
That oxen was HUGE! A few kiddos didn't want to get too close!
Our Nature Guide took us OFF THE TRAIL in search of a beaver dam.
The 4th Graders got to go canoeing! There was a lot of flooding in our area (you may have heard about it on the news). The lake is usually MUCH further back, but since it flooded they actually canoed OVER the basketball courts and playground the children usually play at during down time...
This month has also brought a bit of uncertainty. I was displaced within my school district, so I'd been freshening up my resume and getting ready for interviews. As you all know the end of the year brings lots of TESTING and final REPORT CARDS! I'm shooting to finish grading today and finish report cards this week. I've also been trying to get a jump on signing up for summer professional development! WHEW! Only 7 days left 'til SUMMER :-)
