The leaves in our town are so beautiful right now. We don't have a ton in our yard, but on our walk this morning, we saw two boys raking leaves in their leaf-carpeted yard. Of course Luke thought that was a great idea so when we got home the boys headed out to do some serious rakin'.

At one point, Rog stopped to get a drink of water from his water bottle and Luke says to him, "C'mon Dad, we need to keep workin'."


Here's hoping his love for raking follows him into his teen years.


  1. What a big helper! :) I hope the helping days last until the teen years, but I have my doubts! If you figure out how to make it last, let me know! :)

  2. So funny! Keeping Dad in line. Luke has some serious work ethic!

  3. What a great idea for an activity at Nana's today. We definitely have leaves to rake and now an eager young man to rake them! I love these pics of him.

  4. How cute. Our boys like to rake leaves too!
