Remember when trees were meant for climbing and piles of leaves were an invitation to jump? Last week I recalled my youthful activities and my students created a few memories of their own.
They raked the fallen leaves into a pile as we engaged in winter clean up in the garden. One inspired boy demonstrated how to make "angels". Who needs snow?!
After the leaves were neatly gathered into a pile, I surprised them with the chance to run and jump into the pile.
Once everyone had their turn, we created a rainshower with the leaves.
You can see by the smiles that it was a great morning in the garden.
A little work and a lot of fun enjoying one of life's simple pleasures.
