On Wednesdays I help my oldest daughter by homeschooling my granddaughter. This gives my daughter a break and my granddaughter a nice mid-week change of pace. If all goes well and we get our schoolwork done before too late in the day, then we have some fun. We may bake something, do an art or craft project, go on a walk to the park, or go on a field trip. On a recent rainy Wednesday, we were both tired of being indoors but couldn't think of anything to do in the wet weather. Suddenly, I recalled a drive through wildlife refuge that a friend had told me about. Since it was only a twenty minute drive from my house, my granddaughter and I decided to check it out.
We loved our rainy day field trip to the Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge and will be going again. In the summer there is also a part of the refuge that you can walk through, so we look forward to doing that.
