We knew it was only a matter of time before we were the lucky winners of a yard covered in leaves. Dan and I do not mind raking – but in this yard – while we are raking more are falling and it has turned into a never-ending project.
What do you do when life gives you lemons? Make lemonade. Or when life gives you far to many leaves to control? Make leaf piles.
15 minutes of raking can buy you an entire days worth of your kids playing together SO nicely.
The excitement and giggles pouring from these kids was absolutely contagious. The crunch of their tiny feet hitting the piles brought back so many memories of doing this as a kid.
I crave days such as these. When the boys can have hours of fun. No t.v. – not begging to play with our cell phones. Not arguing with each other and mom and dad playing constant referee. They spent the entire day in the glory of fall.
Bring it on fall! Let there be cooler days. Cozy nights by the fire. Sipping hot tea all day long. Jeans and sweatshirts. And since I am out numbered in this house, I guess bring on football all weekend long. You’ll find me in the kitchen whipping up the appetizers.
