Now, he knows that the only real benefit of raking the leaves, aside of adult peer pressure to have a nice looking lawn which does not have any bearing on Big Buckaroo's decisions in life, is that the grass needs sunlight. So, he will mulch them with a mower, maybe, sometime this year.
Another reason to not rake leaves ~ it will take away our kids creativity. Yep, blaming my leaf strewn yard on my kids.
He made a path throughout our yard that he said people could come walk on to see our animals. He thought $2.00 was a good price. Oh, the entrepreneurial spirit.
The path proceeded to the goat pasture and then back to his playground starting point. Thankfully, he did not charge me.
But, where was everyone else while our little entrepreneur was at work? Oh wait, we do rake leaves.....
After he finished his path and took everyone on it a few times, he decided that he had worked hard and it was time for some fun! Ummmm, I think his daddy was having too much fun on Little Buckaroo's go-kart. He deserves it after all of the Go-Kart Debacle.
I know that raking leaves makes your yard look tidy and everyone else is doing it, but not at our house at the park. It would take away too much of the fun!
Going to mulch (or not),
