Kyle very proudly brought me something held behind his back this afternoon.
He told me, "guess what it is."
I said something silly like "a pickle" since that usually gets a funny response from him.
He said "Mom....." Then brought it out.
The most beautiful leaves from one of my Red Sunset maples, that are now beginning to turn.
I said "Oh, Kyle! They're beautiful! They're my favorite!"
He said "I know! I got them from one of the trees in the front. And I did it like this," he added, pointing to his feet with only socks on.
I grinned, and expressed my thanks.
He grinned and went away pleased with himself.
I wasn't about to complain about him going out without his shoes on such a rainy day. No way.
I love that boy. He melts my heart.
