walk in the woods.

We love walking in the woods in the fall. Each and every day brings something new and different - the leaves change, the ground changes, the plants change, and even the light shifts and paths that have been walked one hundred times look foreign.

We have been finding leaves, acorns, pine cones, bark and other little bits of things. We have been watching chipmunks, birds and squirrels acting very busy. We have been watching, listening, smelling, feeling.

We have sat on moss, laid in the grass, rubbed bark, gently touched fuzzy caterpillars, listened to the crunch of leaves under our feet, tip-toed quietly to see birds and deer. We have run and skipped and laughed and sang. Enjoying the season.

It looks like we have rain and cooler weather for this week and will have some cozy time inside to do some fun fall projects. Hope you had a nice weekend!

Enjoy those subtle changes that are undoubtedly a slower process where you live! What a great time of year for all the senses!

What a wonderful way to spend a nice fall morning. It's fantastic to go on nature scavenger hunts too!

Here in the South, it is still a bit warm, a few weeks from now will be perfect weather to do just that.

We live next to a 100 year old state park and when my kids were this age, we used to hike, picnic and swim there at least 3 times a week. It is some of our favorite memories.

Love your pictures.

I miss the forest! Seems like the biggest sign of autumn for me is the change in the light.
