My new favorite photo. Yesterday after church the woods behind the parking lot called to us for an adventure. Pip said that once we crossed the little stone wall we'd receive powers! ... So of course we had to cross even though she saw goblins and trolls guarding it and we had to duck twice and hide behind a tree once. There was a little break in the wall that we jumped and instantly grew powers. Pip could turn invisible and defeat any bad guy and she said I could fly and shoot fire balls. I snapped this picture of her when I sat down on a rock and she said there was a troll behind me that she needed to defeat. When we crossed the wall again to go home we had to give up most of our powers, but the good news is that next time we go we'll get new powers of farming and raking leaves. Hahaha. I love her imagination!
Here's a photo of the rock wall. You'd never know such magic lay just beyond, would you? :) I think I'll make my whole family jump over it the next time if it will give them all powers to rake leaves. I love the beauty of all the trees around us, but raking is my personal dragon to slay every fall.
After posting the little story and picture of Pip on my facebook page I had a relative send me this photo of her that he tweaked in Photoshop. You should have seen how happy it made her when I showed her this. It's just what she was picturing! I actually took a picture of her seeing it. I'll post that below.
