After four kids, ten moves and nearly two decades, we are still blissfully in love (most of the time) and I found myself back in the state I was born and raised in. It has definitely been a journey. In fact, on our 18th anniversary we pulled the last of our stuff up over the pass and into Montana, leaving our surprise love, Idaho, behind. But Montana is a great place. The last best place according to some. And we fully intend to explore as much of it as we can! Join us on our continued adventure through life, love and other stuff that comes with it.

My deprived children

Where we used to live we had a giant maple tree in the front yard.  Come fall, we had PILES of leaves to rake and play in. 

Here, we have evergreens and a few lilac bushes.  But, my children are really quite brilliant.  They asked their dad for a garbage bag.

Their plan?  To save the leaves for next year! 

Judging by the size of that bag and how full it is, they might need a few years to get enough.  But they have a plan!  Smart kids these are.  Smart kids. 

And I like that instead of complaining about the amount of leaves, they came up with a plan and solved the problem. 

And then went to play hopscotch.
