Leaves are falling...Leaves are falling

Oct 7, 2013

I have had this song stuck in my head from Ace for about two days. Leaves are falling leaves are falling to the ground to the ground....on and on. Ace sings it much cuter than I ever could, I am hoping he comes home with a new preschool top 10 hit this week so I can add to the play list in my head. 

On to our weekend, this weekend was dedicated to getting things done around this new house of ours. For some reason I have had zero motivation to getting things unpacked. This is generally out of character for me since I usually have the house up and running within a few days of moving. But I think moving ourselves this time around wore me out. I decided that this weekend I needed to so something, and since the husband was home for two days in a row I figured I better use him to my advantage before he disappears come Monday. 
All the leaves have fallen off the trees around our house, which makes for free kid entertainment and manual labor!
I have to admit that I have enjoyed seeing the seasons change here in Alaska. I have never lived in a place where the leaves change beautiful colors and the grass in blanketed in such an array of different shades. This is all new to someone who has spent most of her life in the desert. This goes for the kids as well, being born in Arizona did not give them much of a chance to frolic in the wonders of fall. 
It may seem so simple, and not very monumental, but I love watching my kids experience new things. Even if it is just playing in a pile of freshly raked leaves. They spent hours out there kicking the leaves all over the place, and would then wait as patiently as possible for dad to rake them all back up into a giant pile. Nothing makes me happier than watching my kids just be kids...

*I currently cannot find my camera charger, so these photos are brought to you by my iphone!

  4. One thing we won't have in Arizona is the leaves all over the ground. Our new backyard has 3.3 trees, a pool and a whole lot of rock. I'm going to have to live the Fall season vicariously through your photos.
