What is with kids and leaves? If there are leaves around, kids just naturally have to play in them. They just can’t help it. They have to jump in them and throw them, then rake them back into piles and do it all over again! Even for adults, leaves are fun. They crunch underneath your feet as you walk across the yard, they swirl down from the trees dancing as they fall, and somehow, they always manage to collect in the corners of the garage!
