Pocono Environmental Education Center

I know it's been a while.  Between work and personal commitments, September was packed!  I'm hoping things will calm down during the next two weeks so I can get back to normal posting here (and on cookbookmeals.com).

I don't have a math related post today.  I just wanted to share a few pictures.  I spent this past Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday in the Poconos with my 8th graders.  It's an annual trip at PEEC.  This was my 8th or 9th trip (Sorry, I've lost track).  The kids really have a great time.  We do team building, hike, canoe, have animal presentations, etc.  We even have a square dance!  They learn some great things about the environment, but also about teamwork and cooperation.  If you are in the Pocono area, you should definitely look into it!





This dude was sitting next to me on a bench!


This is a golden eagle.  It was huge!


The cutest owl EVER!



Hope you are having a relaxing weekend!
