Boys will be Boys - Canadian Scrapbooker June Sketchy Challnege (layout 183)

Another month means another fabulous sketch by the uber talented Sue Sykes:
June 2014 Sketch

Here is my take:

Journaling reads: I wanted to get some pictures of Kyle in the leaves before the weather turned too cold (here only half the leaves fall then it starts to snow then the rest of the leaves fall) so there is no point in raking leaves in the fall because you just have to do it again in the spring (or whenever the snow decides to melt). It was quite cold in October so the one day it was sunny I bundled Kyle up and we went outside. My parents were here for a visit (as it was almost his birthday) so they also came outside with us. We grabbed the rake and raked the leaves into a pile and then put Kyle in the pile of leaves. He threw the leaves around for a couple of minutes then thought it would be more fun to have a leaf fight with grandpa. Grandpa also taught him how to rake up the leaves but Kyle again thought it was more fun to rake the leaves at grandpa rather than into a pile. The two of them then managed to rake the leaves into a pile, only to jump into them and throw the leaves everywhere. I gave up the idea of having “perfect” fall pictures and instead just started snapping away while my dad and son played . . . I think these pictures turned out much better. It was really nice seeing my dad laugh so hard. Unfortunately, we couldn’t stay outside too long as it was getting much too cold and we were all shivering.
