I get sucked in every fall to pictures of kids in leaves. This spring the water puddles sucked me in. I guess there is always something that catches your eye. So, bear with me as I post pictures of a leaf pile again. We actually raked the neighbors front yard because we could get the most amount of leaves in them smallest area. (Least work for the most fun!) Ellie and Madison have both worked at helping rake these piles. Madison does a pretty good job scraping leaves to the big pile. Ellie, on the other hand, likes to have her own pile. Then, with this pile, she systematically rakes it to another spot and then another spot and so on. It is quite something to watch.
These pictures are best viewed as a flip book because they were practicing flopping backwards, so in one picture you will see them, and the very next shot, they have “disappeared.” It is great. Since I don’t have a flip book feature on the blog, you will just have to imagine it.
I caught a few other fun shots.
This one being my new favorite of the girls.
We left the pile intact for a few days. We had friends coming over to play this past Friday and figured it would be a great thing to play in. It was. Here are some of the best jumps they could give me…
We also walked up to the park. My theory is if I have kids over, we need to burn as much energy as possible outside the house. I was so thankful for the streak of beautiful days we had (and are having!).
