Falling into Fall

I wandered outside the other day to appreciate the beauty of fall, and to hunt for a lost pair of shoes.  I’m so glad I took my camera, because I had no way of knowing that later that day the wind would sweep in and carry most of the leaves off the trees.  I love my neighbor’s tree.  My children spend much of their time in her yard.

And the carpet of leaves!  What a sight!

My heart sighs.  What a season!

Then the children came home from school, the wind picked up and the clouds moved in, and the fun began!

and hurling them to the wind.

As a mother, I ask this question:
How can I bear to call them in to do their homework?
