We just had our last date with the rake...at least until next year.
I don't know if you know this or not, but raking an acre of yard is hard work! I've never had to do it before until we moved into this house. Now I want a leaf blower. :) Any way, we made a small pile for the kids to play in. Scout wasn't digging it, but Rori loved it. All of the trees are now bare and look ready for winter, but the temps have been so high lately! I'm beginning to wonder if winter will skip us this year.
