He's 6. I love that about him.
So, when we got home from work and school yesterday, we grabbed the puppy, grabbed a plastic bag for each kid, and headed for the main boulevard to make sure we found some good pieces of garbage. The kids were so excited...each time they saw a piece, they ran for it and counted out loud. They took turns picking them up..."you can have that piece," "I'll grab the next piece." Sharing trash. My kids are awesome.
Avalon was most excited about the In and Out wrapper she found. Loudoun was most excited about the Tommy's chili burgers wrapper he found. Both outstanding finds, if you ask me.
On the walk back down our block, the three of us talked about what we had just accomplished and how good it made us all feel inside. Sweet kids with big hearts, I tell ya.
