Wordless Wednesday (almost)

Gabriel doesn't need to be asked to rake. Don't you love that about five-year-olds? Short on ability, maybe, but long on willingness and so eager to please. Gabe actually did a great job on this task, though. He filled three trashbags full of leaves, loaded them up in the wagon, and wheeled them over to the dumpster before the morning was out. All by his sweet little self. You see him here in his most favorite article of clothing -- his new yellow raincoat. His second favorite thing to wear is this pair of shoes:



We call them his "cranium shoes."

Such a sweet little guy to love such mean looking shoes...

I absolutely love that age! they are so willing to do anything for you and you always get a straight answer from them if they don't! SUCH A SWEET age. I would love to bottle their energy and enthusiasm.
