Fun with Leaves

DH and I have spent several days dealing with the pile of leaves produced by our most spectacular ash trees in the front yard.

I spent one day raking them into piles that DH could “vacuum”.

Let me just say that the gathering part was a lot more fun when the boys were small. The photo below was taken when the kids were about 2 and 3 years old. That’s Twin One on the left pulling leaves out of his mouth, Son One (the goat herder) in the middle, and Twin Two on the right, laughing the loudest.

They’re not in college and beyond so we don’t see them very often. Oh, how I miss them!
