The Art of Leaf Jumping
You know you're old when your kids ask you to jump in the leaf pile with them and you say, "No way!" I remember loving to jump in the fall leaves as a kid. Even in New York City before the 1978 pooper scooper law, I used to beg my mom to let me run through the leaves. Nowadays, I whole-heartedly join other types kid fun, but somewhere along the way, I grew out of leaf jumping. But these kids have taken leaf jumping to new heights of joy.
Who would ever think that getting a faceful of leaves thrown at you could be so much fun?
Or a talking leaf pile? I should clarify, a crazy talking leaf pile.
Let's not forget Dova's rendition.
But my favorite photo is this gravity-defying explosion of leaves and kids.
Autumn is good. Too bad it's snowing outside right now here in New England!
