Raking Leaves

Nick sent McKenzie and Trevor out to our backyard to embark on a new chore they will have to do now that we are in Virginia... the land of seasons. RAKE LEAVES!

This was as far as they got on day one...
Day 2.... starting up again... this time, we had a little more motivation, and more progress.  Instead of bagging them all up (Can you imagine???) Nick and the kids just dumped them over the back fence. No worries, the other side of the fence isn't someone's yard... it's just a deep slope that divides us from a condominium down the way.

TA-DA!  The leaves are constantly falling, so it will be a while (if ever) before we have a completely leafless yard. But it sure is pretty!

You need to get Nick a leaf blower... My boys love ours.

Yay!! I'm so glad that you made it to Virginia for one, and that you and your family are settling in so nicely! From what I've seen of your photos so far, you've got yourself quite the lovely and huge house!
