Tuesday 10/14/08 raking leaves...

The leaves in our neighborhood have started falling. The trees are partly green and partly a rainbow of color. The tree in our front yard has been cut down, so we don't have any leaves. The colors of the leaves on our lawn would be pretty, but I don't mind that we won't need to rake the front yard. In our back yard the neighbor's leaves fall into our yard, so we can rake them.
Before we decided to move, we had a compost pile in the backyard and we raked all of our leaves back there. We also raked all of our neighbor's leaves onto our compost pile. All of the kids in the neighborhood would come and help. No one had enough rakes for all of the kids, about twelve kids in all...so we used shovels and wagons too. We ended up with leaves everywhere, but we had a great time.
