fall or spring?

yesterday we raked our leaves. yep, you read that right. we raked our leaves. every spring our avocado tree sheds its leaves and yesterday was nice and chilly so we went outside and raked those babies up. but first we had to make a pile to jump in.
and than we laid on our backs on the leaf pile and looked up at the tree and all of the leaves that still have to fall off.

we also had to look for bugs that might be crawling around in the leaves and using them "as a habitat".

and of course we had to throw those crunchy leaves up into the air and watch them all fall down on us.

and when we had had our fill of playing with them we placed them all in our compost bin so that they can become "magic dirt". and that was our fall, spring day.
