Life's Simple Pleasures

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.
