Like most happy new home owners, we thought what could we do to celebrate the newness of this blessed season? Oh I know, lets pick up our oldest kid and throw her in a fluffy pile of leaves like you see in the movies!
Only tree leaves are itchy, did you know that?
My neighbor stopped by to let us know that we can continue to rake our brightly colored leaves if we want to, but we will be raking until our arms are sore- due to the fact that we live in a home surrounded by giant trees and they are all loosing buckets of leaves each day. Point taken Sir- we just wanted a movie moment.
We’re not into raking, or tossing our children into dead wet leaves- but we like memories and movie moments. We want to look back and say “we did that”. More importantly we want our kids to say “I’ve done that. I’ve got that memory.” But in case they forget, I took 780 pictures.
* Side note: No babies or children were harmed in the making of this memory.*
