Autumn = cooler weather
Cooler weather = falling leaves
Falling leaves = piles of color
Piles of color = attraction
Attraction = curiosity
Curiosity = children
Children, leaves, piles, color, attraction, curiosity = fun!
Kids have a habit of flailing themselves into autumn’s leafy beds of brilliantly colored leaves. Ahhhh! To be a kid again, if only for just a little while. Long enough to join in on the fun and rekindle the habit of total lack of inhibition.
When’s the last time you did this?
Thought I’d get this WordPress challenge in before they post a new one – TOMORROW! Talk about under the wire! Click on the icon for more on Habits.
That is so cute and looks like lots of fun. But here’s what I know for sure: 1. I used to love doing that when I was little. 2. I would never do it again. 3. If I did, deadly, poisonous spiders would be all over me when I got up. …’Cause, right?? It’s just dumb luck that we weren’t all killed by a hundred spider bites already. GAH! I think fear is becoming a habit….
Have NO fear! With the cold weather the spiders should be heading for the hills (or under your covers!). Sleep tight and thanks. 🙂
Such cute pics, Gemma. Loved the short video too. Children see fun and games in everyday things. I could hear those leaves crackling. 🙂
Thanks, ad. Kids do know how to have fun. 😉
I like it, he looks so cute ! Better late than never has become my motto too !
Thanks, Kathryn. I need to muster up the energy to get back in the game. 😉
I understand! You can do it!! : )
We shall see. I’m still catching up on comments and replies. Ugh!
Had coffee at one of my favorite spots today – EspressIt – and you came to mind. Bet you would have loved the soy pumpkin latte muffin I had. 😉
Fantastic, Gemma! And to answer your question: I’ve NEVER done that. Where I grew up, the leaves never fell off the trees.
Well, you’ll need to give it a try! 😉
And thanks! 😀
Excellent portraits, Gemma. Definitely conveying warmth and family.
Thank you, Allan. 😉
Fun and memorable times..
Exactly, Roberta. 😉
We have never had enough autumn/fall leaves to play in, as these photos depict. The boys look like they were having fun.
I almost think my husband enjoyed himself more than our little friend. 😉
I was just thinking something similar the other night as I watched a very energetic two year old run in circles by herself as she wore a look of amusement which lit up the whole park we were hanging out at. And I thought how cool it would be to carry that level of excitement for such a simple activity and to throw oneself in with not one single care about who was watching or what they might think…I really believe we adults can learn a lot from kids.
Thanks for sharing and have a great night!
Yes, I believe we could learn a lot listening and watching kids. Thanks for stopping by, Linsey. Enjoy yours as well. 🙂
Thought we were doing Six word Saturday when you started out, Gem 🙂
Leaves- now that’s a nice, soft landing place! That last shot is totally adorable. I still like to kick them in the air when not too many people are looking, but they’re not often deep enough for a shot like that. Love it 🙂
Thanks, Jo. We saw some piles that were literally way over our heads! Fun!
Like the pix, Gem – and the movie – you’re branching out! That top picture is really eye-catching. The deep blues really go well with the other sunlit colours, and the shadows make fascinating shapes.
And the photo at the bottom has so many warm tints, and the child’s expression is so happy, contented and warm too – its a wonderful portrait. A 🙂
Don’t even get me started with the branching out! I almost gave up on that video. (But that’s not me.). Thanks, Adrian. Your words are gold, as always. 😉
This is the only reason to rake leaves!
I hear ya!
