Yesterday was a beautiful fall day. I raked a pile of leaves in front of the stump the kids call the "cannon," then called them out. Lydia and Malachi delighted in playing there for hours. Elijah took over the rake and spent a very long time re-raking the pile for them. (It is handy to have a big brother around!)
Yes, they were still in their church clothes. I didn't have the heart to make them stop and go change. Luckily, the leaves were all dry, so the clothes faired well.
