Today at Pye Acres, Cathy’s science students weren’t the only one’s working on good grades. As Grade 11 students enjoyed a hands-on lesson in tree identification and species classification, an A+ went to the bulldozer\high-hoe operator who gave our new home it’s final grade. It looks awesome.
In the words of Mark Twain, “I never let my schooling interfere with my education.” Obviously, the literary legend must have had a terrific teacher, like my amazing wife Cathy, who goes the extra distance to provide her students with special learning opportunities. Today’s class trip to Pye Acres is one of a dozen of more that we have thoroughly enjoyed hosting. The student’s enthusiasm for wide open spaces, and their fascination with wildlife, plant life and various creepy-crawlers, remind us why our outdoor opportunities are so important to share. I’m proud of Cathy for shaping our future’s environmental education, right in our own backyard.
