two things.

i kicked through the leaves yesterday. bright yellow and gold ones. walked along, scuffing my feet, sending them flying crunchily in front of me. I've never done that before. I would shudder when other kids would do it in the school playground, picking my way carefully across. I was always afraid of what might lurk beneath. scared of the unseen.

last night there was a huge round of shouting and banging from next door. "How DARE you say that??!!" he kept repeating. then silence.

I love kicking through the leaves. the only thing that lies beneath anything that i'm scared of is the size of my bottom though!
good on ya.

and really ladies, i think we dare say anything, because we're phenomenal women, as Maya Angelou once said

My son loves to kick up the leaves. He loves that crunchy sound. Always has. So we do that often.

I hope everything was ok at your neighbor's house.

Next stop...raking up a big pile of leaves and jumping right in the middle. Baby steps.
