How to have fun with your autumn leaf pile:
First, rake leaves until your arms feel like they might fall off.
Not even the littlest among you is exempt from this chore.
Keep raking. And raking. And raking. “Rad” red sunglasses optional.
Think to yourself “I am a little girl and I’ve had ENOUGH raking.” Then, rake some more.
Finally, when the pile is as tall or taller than you are,
slowly fall backwards until your entire body is buried in leaves.
Next, back waaaay up, taking a running start, and jump into the leaf pile.
Plugging your nose and closing your eyes– as if you were jumping into a pool of water instead of a leaf pile– is optional.
**Full disclosure: this gratuitous post is about 50% wanting to share fun photos of my kids with you and 50% an exercise in figuring out adding photos to WordPress. And 100% “Um, DAVID? I have a question…” (This would have been much harder to do a few weeks ago when we were not talking. Settling conflicts via communication, FTW, now with added WordPress support!)
P.S. Anyone experience a slow-loading page with this post? I’m wondering if doing the photos this size is ok or if it clogs things up for people…
