Raking It In

It’s that time of year – when the leaves fall and cover our yards and driveways and sidewalks.  The sound of leaf-blowers can be heard every day in our neighborhood.  Since we only have one tree in our yard, we don’t really bother with getting rid of our leaves, and have not invested in a leaf-blower.
Esther wanted a leaf pile in which to jump, though, and I came out the other afternoon to find her busily raking the yard into a scanty leaf pile.  It was so cute!  I didn’t have the heart to tell her it would be a rough landing, and she was content to wander around the yard gathering up the leaves. 
                               You gotta love that look of complete concentration – the tongue sticking out!

Here’s the happy, leaf-raking, apron-wearing pixie princess!
