This is old now, but I need it in the “scrapbook”. We had to wait and wait to play in the leaves. All the leaves dropped and then it rained, and rained, and rained. We put up the Christmas tree while we waited for the leaves to dry. A week later we were able to play and play in our big ole pile of leaves. Ella could play for hours! Run, jump, roll around, bury herself. I raked them up and they did it again and again. For 2 days!
