Monday after our music class, the neighbor kids came over to play in our leaves (they donated the rakes!) They showed Nate and Gwen what to do. The squeals of joy could probably be heard into the next county.
Eventually everyone had to go home and the kids got to play by themselves in the leaves.
They mostly like walking through the leaves.
This little one, here is obsessed with the leaves, she kept saying to me things like "Melanie, we need more leaves, the pile needs to be much bigger". She would have stayed all afternoon, I have told her she could come back and have been increasing the pile everyday.
Eric says we have to move the pile or it is going to kill all the grass! :( Hopefully a week or so of leaves won't do too much damage, because I get to see things like this...
I mean, who gets to see princesses raking leaves with such good form! Also when Eric came home that night we buried Eric and kids in the leaves, who knew you could do that! Nate also appears to be sick, runny nose and cranky. That's all I can report, because that's all I know!
In other news, I have again signed up for NaBloPoMo, I have not been doing very well updating this blog and hopefully this will help me keep up with it. Because last year I won a prize!!! Wohoo! Of course I won't likely win a prize again this year, but I still need to post more often.
