Addison and I raked the first pile of leaves today....the first of hundreds. I'm not really kidding, we have three HUGE oak trees in our yard which, in the summer, provide amazing shade and save us a little money on A/C, but in the fall are work, work, work. Leaves would be one thing, but acorns are another. Our drive way and side yard should be marked as HAZARDOUS AREA! acorns fall at a pretty serious speed, and if one isn't careful, injury is sure to occur. I can't tell you how many innocent neighbor children came to our house last fall and slipped on the acorn blanketed driveway; there were many a tear shed due to acorns! Kelly is determined to create an oak tree birth-control, but until then we'll invest in hard-helmets!
