    We are also raking leeavs and they are WET! It’s just the first round, we have to do it a couple of times to get them all and the trees are late dropping them this year. Do your kids like to play in the leeavs? Our two who are still at home don’t like it any more but we do have some fun laughing and joking around while we rake and bag.[] Reply:November 10th, 2009 at 1:56 amOur children love to play in the leeavs. We have a dozen or so massive oak trees in addition to half a dozen maples and the other assortment, so leaf season at our house lasts and lasts.[]
