This is all the pictures I took of November. When the leaves on the tree in our front yard came down all the kids were excited to rake them up and jump. After school one day they ran outside to start raking. As much fun as that sounds, they spent more time fighting over who rakes and who gets to jump first. They finally agreed they needed to jump one at a time.
Sam decided to try knocking more leaves off the trees.
I don’t have a picture of the moment, but the fun basically ended when Boo walked over, lifted his leg, and wet on the leaf pile. The kids started yelling, “NOOOO!! YUCK!” That was it, it was time to go in and do homework. Most of our late afternoons and evenings on weekdays look like this:
Abby had a few projects due in November and she spent a lot of time in her favorite homework spot.
We did have a great Thanksgiving, I just was too busy mingling and talking to take any pictures. We had family over at our house and we also had a big dinner with extended family up in Bountiful, Utah. It’s good to live near family and we have much to be thankful for this year.
