I haven't had the opportunity to rake leaves for several years. Living as a guest in people's homes every day doesn't allow us the opportunity to do many chores or regular household activities, which we often miss. Last night my host offered to let the girls rake the leaves in her front yard. We jumped on it..literally! Scovia, Sarah, and I raked to our hearts content and then jumped and rolled around in the leaves, giggling all the while. I let the girls bury me in leaves and we had a giant leaf throwing fight. These are the moments in life that create a great story. Jump in the leaves, play make-believe with your children, throw a tea party, dance in the rain, make memories that will last and leave an impression.
