It's always so much fun piling, throwing, and crunching leaves! We went for a leaf walk this week, and also crunched them, made heaps, buried each other, and tossed them up into the air. Back at the house, every child grabbed a rake and we tackled the front yard.
The children really enjoyed engaging in this meaningful work, as well as jumping in our leaf piles and helping stuff two huge bags with leaves. A child's work is play, and when that play combines with necessary tasks of daily living, the children are able to grow and develop while learning and practicing valuable life skills.
When we headed inside, it was time for a calming lunch and nap. Kaliana was home on Thursday, and she wanted to lead the children through their pre-nap story. It was a treat to watch the children gathered round, and listening so attentively to my bright oldest child!
