Fall in New England = Raking Leaves. Mike says it's how Nature gets you in shape for snow-shoveling season. It's pretty much what's on our agenda every weekend from now until Christmas. I hate it. Mike doesn't enjoy it. The girls on the other hand, eternal optimists and silver-lining aficionados that they are, love love love raking leaves. That's because they never rake but only frolic in the piles that we make, spreading all the leaves around the yard all over again. Their enthusiasm does make it slightly less of a chore.
Kate took a break to ride her bike ...and wear hats. She insisted on the helmet-stocking hat combo look. Very warm and safe.
Maggie is always full of nutty ideas and imaginative schemes.
So many wacky ideas...
Kate was really not as sure about this whole escapade as Maggie was.
But in the end, it was terribly fun!
