October Activities: Leaves Leaves

While we had plenty of leaves for jumping in back in Kansas, it does not come close to the amount of leaves around our house here. It made playing in the leaves a simple activity, hardly any work for mom.
Well until the boys were done and I had to rake them to the curb to be picked up by the city. We've gone out several time to rake leaves. And each time the boys enjoy jumping, hiding and throwing balls into the big pile I/we create. And while Mark is probably beyond down with raking, I've enjoyed the time I got to spend outside with the boys raking and playing. That being said, Mark worked much harder than I did this last outing working on getting as many to the curb as possible. There were alot too, as we are talking care of our neighbor/landlady's yard as well as our own. Left raking parties are the best. And their will be more at our family's houses as we repay their kindness for helping us. Some of the leaf games my boys came up with this last month are hiding and go seek with shoes, throw a football into the pile, turning our bodies and/or feet into diggersand of course jumping in ourselves.
Got to love leaves! If you don't, you're doing it wrong.
