I'll be the first to admit that I am not an expert jumper. I had six weeks of jumping lessons many years ago as a teenager (and no, that was not prehistoric times!). I know what a two-point is and can sometimes achieve it correctly. None of my horses are trained jumpers either, but we had a blast anyway. Here's some video.
We even got Kid 2 in the saddle briefly, though her head was hurting and she opted not to jump.
Then it was back to raking leaves. Kid 2 had her headache and Kid 1 developed a stomach ache, so it was down to me and Kids 3 & 4. Kid 3 did the bulk of the raking while Kid 4 and I concentrated on bagging up the leaves.
We ended up with fourteen 45-gallon bags stuffed full. That's a lot of leaves. We still have a bit more to do, but we got the worst of it done. At least I don't have to worry about the lawn being killed off by the thick layer of leaves.
We finished the last bag at 6 pm. Let me tell you, scooping up leaves in the dark when no one's been able to scoop the dog poop (on account of the fact that it had gotten buried in the leaves) is NOT pleasant.
Then it was time to head off to the holiday dinner party at church. Kid 2 had made fresh chocolate chip cookies to bring. It was marvelous to not worry about making dinner!
