This beautiful sunny Saturday when you decide to go outside and get those leaves all cleaned up consider the following thought first. Can you spare the time and energy to do it twice? Rake it all into a huge pile and let your kids run through it, hide in it, jump in it and have the pleasure of enjoying the leaves. When they get bored with it then you can rake the leaves up for real. It may take more time and effort but it is so worth the shouts of joy from their little voices.
