The boys and I went for a ride on our Gator (by far my favorite farm toy) and we decided to go for a walk near the creek bed on our property. As we were talking about the changing leaves I began seeing them, the buckeyes. I knew they were out there because the older kids had brought almost 2 gallons of them in the house to make crafts with. They were all scattered among the leaves and if you looked closely you could just see slight shiny brown spots under the fallen leaves.
Once we started finding them the little boys got so excited that they filled their pockets full of buckeyes. We even found twins in one of the dried out pods.
