We have a huge ash tree growing in our front yard and every year we deal with raking and bagging the leaves. It is a job Alvin certainly doesn't look forward too but Cooper and Chandler have decided it is a fun time of the year for them. See the pictures of the two boys on January 11, 2006 playing in the leaves.
Thanks Gretchen for planning a play day in the leaves this year. It wasn't all fun though! It was "work, play, and more work (bagging)." After having fun they than filled 28 large bags with the leaves. Pa was certainly surprised and very grateful when he came home that afternoon. Thanks Cooper and Chandler for your help in the yard.
