We went on a field trip with the homeschool group to the Sand Lake Wildlife Refuge today. It was rainy, so that was kind of a downer, but the kids didn't seem to care. We went on a nature hike and checked out the scenery. We didn't see a whole lot of wildlife, due to the rain, but we did see a few things...here's some pics of our day:
On the trail....This is a huge watch tower...I'm not sure how high it is, but believe me...it's up there!!
Anyway, the guide said we could climb up as high as we wanted and of course Sophia would have gone to the top if I would have let her, but I got freaked out after one flight...hey, it was slippery, those steps were wooden and old-looking....
but Noah on the other hand...he was up to the very top in no time!! I was so impressed. No one else in our group made it to the top except for two other 13-year-olds and the guide!
Way to go Noah!!
