Jumping in the Leaves

A couple of Saturdays ago, I came home from running errands to come home and see Jon and Adelaide out front raking the leaves.  Each season in our home we discover some new type of outside maintenance.  Winter brought snow, spring brought flowers and gardens and weeding, summer brought lawn mowing and fall brought leaves.

Adelaide couldn’t resist the opportunity to jump in the leaves.  She spent a good part of the afternoon running through the piles we’d just made.  And helping, of course.

At one point I looked at Jon and said, “So raking leaves is basically sweeping your entire yard?”

Thank goodness we have Adelaide to help us with all of this work.

    Jon and Joan these are adorable. Save these pictures till she is 12 and older. Wonder if she will still love ‘sweeping’ the yard then? Enjoy her help while you have it!!
