There are so many things I'm thankful for but that's not what this blog is about. Instead I was reminded yesterday while at Magic Moutnain with the kids about how simple "growing enthusiasm" in the garden can be! It takes a falling leaf and a moment to relax and decide to chase it.
When the kids were younger, we loved chasing leaves on a windy day. When we would catch one we'd spend what seemed like hours looking at it, turning it into a puppet and comparing it to others. Now that they're older, I loved seeing that even while surrounded by crowds, roller coasters and games, they were able to take a moment to relax and enjoy the simplicity of a falling leaf.
So today, in the middle of family chaos and chasing down timers in the kitchen, take a moment to go catch or chase a leaf. Watching them dance in the wind is fun. Trying to catch them is a bit harder but even more fun! This is a great way to get in the garden, get fresh air, and remember to keep it simple!
