This is our first fall in our house in Oxford. I guess this would be the girls' first official fall settled on the mainland. They are enjoying the crisp air and colors of fall. We took a field trip to Home Depot to pick up a couple of rakes (because that's not a tool one needs when living on an island) so the girls could rake up the leaves in the backyard. The mountain of leaves was mind boggling - at least as tall as Bijou. Zion wanted to join them, but I'm pretty sure I'd have lost her in the mound, so she was forced to watch from the window.
