Yesterday, we decided it was time to rake leaves. For those that don’t know, we have two very large oak trees in our front yard. Not all of the leaves have fallen off the tree yet (as an indication as to how big it is)…but, we would like grass to grow some this spring and summer, so we needed to get the leaves off so photosynthesis could work hard. On a plus side for nto raking leaves, we haven’t had to cut our grass while others have because of the unusually warm weather!
Zoe helped a good bit until she just couldn’t take it anymore. Ace tried to help but wound up scattering them all over again. After we got two big piles raked up, we let the kids go at them. They asked to “pile on the pile!”
