We have a beautiful tree in our front yard. Tall and full, it shades the front room windows and makes the whole lawn a much cooler place to relax. Unfortunately, it also sheds these little seed/leaf/pod things all over. ALL OVER. And I haven't been diligent about raking or mowing them up lately. So it was a delight to see this the other day. John had been watering the lawn, and the girls had been using the sprinkler as their personal waterpark. However, who wants to play in a water park when you can help dad rake the seed things? Holding the bag "open wide" was a difficult concept to master, but with such happy helpers, who cares?
And it is wonderful sometimes to be the only one not working. I sat on the porch. And this was my view looking down.
Such a good baby.
