Most of October has been cloudy, cold, and rainy here in MI; ruining those bright, clear, crisp fall days that I so love. :( So when there was a peak of sunshine and no rain early last week, we took some time away from school so I could get some photos.
Actually, we did fit in some school because we drove out to a friend's house in the country who has a beautiful property with a pond. Noah had to collect some pond water for a science experiment.
(clever Noah attaching a ladle to a rake handle with duct tape, to reach the bottom of the pond!)
(jars waiting for collected water, to be used for the micro-organism experiment)
(these were all at my friend's property that I try not to covet!)
(along a country road)
(another country road)
(tree reflection in a creek at a park near our house)
(bush that only gets noticed in the fall, on the side of our house that we rarely go!)
