Raking Leaves

Because our ginkgo tree shed all its leaves, there was plenty of raking to do! I sent the kids out the door this morning to start on the task and here's what we ended up with--

I think they all started out helping. However, as soon as there was a pile big enough to play in, only one stayed on task. The rest dove right in and buried themselves in the leaves. There were lots of giggles and even singing - at one point they were singing four-part harmony with leaves up to their necks - but the task was eventually finished with smiles all around!

The prize for most diligent goes to Spencer. He raked enough to cover everyone else. :)

Not a care in the world for this boy!

That's a lot of leaves!
