News Article and Fall Picture...
So far this week we have had absolutely beautiful fall weather. Yesterday I planted bulbs (my seemingly neverending project at the moment) and raked up the leaves in our back yard. Pavlos has his own kid-sized rake and he was "helping" mommy. uhm, yeah. He wanted to rake right where I was raking and then, when I finally had a really good pile going and went to get our yard debris garbage can, Pavlos proceeded to jump into the pile of leaves and spread them all over the yard, again. Here's a picture of Pavlos in the leaves. I guess my mom taught the kids about jumping in the leaf piles:) Needless to say, I didn't get as many leaves into the yard debris can as I wanted to!
And here's a link to an article I read yeaterday about making sure to give children just old fashioned play time. Like leaf-jumping:)
