|Michael brought the first one down - he barely got into it and it was falling|
These trees were a hazard.
Cory cut them into manageable pieces

Michael and the boys had built a saw buck earlier in the week - they put it to use today.
Mary Ellen, a neighbor who lives behind us, though we can't see her house this time of year, stopped by. She lived in the bush for years. She lives alone. She's 70. She said we were making her think she should get out her chain saw. She brought us a bucket of yummy raspberries from her place. She gardens - organically - and is open to helping me get set up to do the same.
After the trees were down - everyone took a bit of time to play. I met another neighbor when they called to let us know they had Yuuki. She's earned perpetual stake status.
Dodge ball on the trampoline

As you can see above, Jared kept getting hit in the chest. This often triggers his SVT - so we watched to see...but all was fine.
Arielle was finally able to get up on the trampoline - she didn't get to play dodge ball or jump.
Stacia and I took the raspberries left after lunch, added some service berries to them, and made a cobbler.
After the busy week we've had, it would have been nice to laze around....but it feels good to get so much done. We're in a race against winter. The leaves are turning.
