It's Fall!

My favorite thing about the fall? The crunchy, swishy sound of the leaves on the ground as you walk through them. Lovely. There are many other things, too: crisp morning air, the colors of the leaves, exchanging t-shirts and shorts for jeans and sweatshirts, fall activities, the novelty of the first cups of hot chocolate.

Earlier this week, we headed outside to gather up some leaves to jump in. Our neighbor Pavan was out and he joined in the fun! The tree, whose trunk is in the picture below, has only a handful of leaves clinging to its branches. So there were plenty on the ground to sweep into a large pile.

Elizabeth particularly enjoys creating leaf showers.

Happy fall to all of you!
