A Kind Of Fun I Never Experienced As A Kid - WW

I raked the whole yard. It was good exercise. Then the kids wanted to enjoy the leaves! They had a ball! It's the kind of fun I've never experienced and I get to see my kids enjoy.

Ahh the simple things that make them happy.
 Eying the leaves. Asking me if it's time yet to jump!

 And they're off!
 I know they'd choose the leaves over the ball 10 times!

  1. How fun. My sister and I loved to play in the leaves when we were kids. That was oh so very long ago.

    Have a terrific WW. :)

  7. You have a strong back. I raked about half my daughters front yard it hurt the whole time, i would loved to have been able to do it all, Oh the good old days :) Kids' look like they are loving it. I can remember jumping in piles of leaves and they felt so itchy... but didn't slow us down any...

  18. I LOVE that you so THOROUGHLY raked the yard, leaving NO loose leaves and then were willing to let the kids go to town in them. You are a good mom!

  22. Where I live there are not to many trees but I do remember going to my uncles house once after he raked the leaves and having a blast jumping into it. It is the simple things in life that make great memories.

  23. The best! Their bright eyes and smiles say it all.

    Angie's right; what a great mom.

    We had a freeze earlier in the week, and it's already 70 degrees again.
