Autumn days :)

Today, at our homeschool co-op, we went exploring in the woods behind the building. It. Was. Awesome.

It was absolutely perfect outside. The air was crisp, the streams were clear, and the colors were GORGEOUS. It looked a bit like this:


A good friend of mine and I explored an old ruin that was right smack dab in the middle of the woods, I tried to find a similar picture, but I couldn't find one that would do it justice. Picture this building in the middle of a fairy tale woods, falling apart at the seams, and looking about 100 times prettier.



We were surprised to find one of these hiding inside:



Ok, so maybe it didn't look quite this bloodthirsty... (It was actually pretty cute). But hey, I'm just trying to add a little excitement to this post. :D


We screamed and then proceeded to slip and slide on the wet ground frantically trying to get away from something that moved in the corner of the building, which ended up being a mouse. Oh yes, we are a fearless pair. :D

One of my friends pointed to his muddy shirt and said "This is a sign of a day well spent". He was absolutely correct.

P.S. We are planning on doing a photoshoot at the ruin in another week or two, so you can expect some pictures.
