I don’t know about you other moms out there, but I am loving Fall! The apples, the pumpkins, cooler weather, heartier foods, beautiful foliage – all of that. But one other thing I am truly delighting in are the leaves in my yard. They have proven to be an endless source of work for my industrious children!
What better answer could I have for a small child who says, “Mom I’m bored,” than to respond, “Oh, great! I was looking for someone to rake leaves.” Brings a smile to my face. They actually enjoy the work. I sent them all out last week to rake and then transfer their leaf piles to my garden beds for composting over winter. Kept them busy all day.
I can speak from experience when I say that productive kids are happy kids. And my two-year-old can speak from experience when she says that yard work is more enjoyable when wearing a leotard.
