And with the Fair finally over I feel like I can really enjoy it. After our Fair outing on Saturday, I was ready for some relaxing on Sunday. But it was such a pretty day! And there were leaves. Grant has been waiting for the leaves to fall, talking about a leaf pile, for months. And his little face lit up when I suggested we make one Sunday (side note: Sunday felt, to this Yankee, like it was a million degrees outside but it still looked like fall so I was happy-ish).
We got out Grant's tractor with its new wagon and I dug out the rake and we went to work.
|Eventually he decided to remove the wagon and|
use it like a wheelbarrow.
|It was very effective.|
|I love this happy boy :)|
Our already-not-huge leaf pile diminished rather quickly with all the jumping, as you can see from the above picture. Even though I kept piling it up, at some point I had to ask Grant not to jump so hard in it because I was worried about how hard he was hitting the ground! He didn't care when he couldn't jump anymore. Because he could still Hulk Smash the leaves...
|One of my favorites of the day! He's the best.|
What a fun morning! The lawn was mowed the same day so our leaf pile is long gone but I'm sure it won't be too long before we have enough leaves to do it again. And I think I can handle it again now that my muscles have sufficiently recuperated from the raking workout!
