We all fall down

We all fall down

Wonder Woman set off Friday morning for a girls’ weekend with some of her out-of-state friends, leaving me to care for the kiddos until late Sunday afternoon. My mom took them for a good part of Saturday, but yesterday, it was just me and them, from sunup till almost sundown … and I’m beyond thrilled to report that we had a great time.

It was unseasonably warm — almost 70 — and all of our neighbors used the day to rake, bag and dispose of the leaves blanketing every inch of ground in the neighborhood. I did some raking, too. Yeah, I raked a big pile of leaves at the bottom of our little slide, and let the kids barrel into it, over and over again. That’s enough yard work for me, thanks.

    Great Shot! We had warm weather & clean lawns & motorcycles & convertables all weekend.
    Thanks for the insight of what I’m in for: annoying sing-songs, stuck in my head, then a broken heart when they out-grow it. Imagine what a mess we’ll be when they go off to college!

    Raking leaves for purposes other than creating jumping-in piles is highly overrated. I mean, really–don’t people WANT the leaves to biodegrade and turn mushy and enrich the soil? (That’s what happens, right? University officials didn’t insist on much knowledge of organic processes for English majors.) Earthkillers, each and every one of them.
