O Is For October

October is for moving.

We moved from our apartment into a rental house, but not until we spent WEEKS fixing the place up. Let me explain. The house we just moved into is Ben’s grandparent’s place. They use it as a rental to supplement their retirement. They dropped the price for us, and we fixed it up in return. I’ll post more on the house in another post, as I want to include a photo tour, and there are still boxes everywhere.

October is for leaves, and a LOT of them.

We had to rake the yard badly. You couldn’t see where the path in the back was anymore.  Alyssa and I had a hayday playing in them today.

Yes, the pile is that big. It comes up to my waist, and there is a second one about 6 feet away.

Alyssa kept pointing to the trees and would say ” Uht OOOOO” (like she does every time she falls)
