Great photos! I have a wonderful photo of Leah I took when she was 4 sitting in a pile of leaves, and I'm very partial to leaf pictures. I haven't been reading your blog for a while, so I will now comment here on one of your previous posts.

On the subject of Word's spellcheck word-replace function, I once received a paper to edit that was written by someone whose first language was Japanese. He had apparently run the spell check in order to clean up the paper, but had hit replace in a few places that he shouldn't have. The paper was on borehole geophysics, and he had OK'd the change from 'borehole' to the Word suggestion of 'brothel'. Now that was a fun paper to edit. My favourite part was when he discussed 'excellent brothel conditions' and I wondered what would constitute excellent brothel conditions: pretty girls? soft beds? good scotch? cheap rates?

Great photos! I love photos of children outside playing. It just seems...right. Ummm...did you have your children racking up the leaves at a park, or do you have a park bench in your yard??? Very fancy!

FUN! I love the annual rake-the- leaves-jump-in-the-pile-repeat-repeat-repeat. Much fun! Until the leaves are all shredded in tiny pieces all over the lawn and impossible to bag up...

Sweet. Kids romping around in piles of leaves. Never gets old.

Now that is a whole lotta leaves.

Awwwww, those are awesome shots!! I'm torn, in our current cookie cutter home, we have no yard, no trees, thus no leaves...on the one hand, I'm grateful to have no raking, but on the other, my kids are missing out on one of the joys of childhood! Maybe I need to take a quick trip to the cottage this week....

:-))

I'm pretty sure child labour laws only apply to situations like taking your kid out of school so they can engage in paid work. Forcing them to rake leaves during their off hours is TOTALLY allowed. Maybe even encouraged.

I LOVED doing that as a kid and with mine when they were small enought to enjoy it!
