As I was raking leaves today I began to reminisce about how we used to play in the leaves as kids while raking them. First we raked them into walls for our "house". We started with the kitchen then the living room followed by the bedrooms and finally the bathroom. After that was all done then we played house for awhile. As the oldest I was always the mother. My brother was the father and my sister was the baby. Some times the neighborhood kids joined in with us. What a "family" we had then. When we were finally done with that we would rake the leaves into a big pile and jump into them. Finally we would rake them to the curb where my uncle would start a big bonfire with them(imagine trying to do that now!). How much more fun raking leaves was then!
