Perhaps some of you in the colder climates have already lost your leaves, but we have just started to change colors here, and today happened to be one of those breezy, fall days.
As we were walking down the sidewalk, Azer looked up into the sky as a gust blew up, and he said, "Look Mommy, its like its raining leaves!" Very poetic I think.
I have memories as a child of collecting leaves and things in a basket outdoors in my grandparents backyard. I thought the kids would enjoy collecting the brightest leaves. We've got a very bright basket so far!
After looking at the basket intensely, Azer said, "It looks like the leaves are thirsty." Is it time for a science lesson?
