Just as Kje got most of the way home from school yesterday, it started to rain. He arrived home a bit wet but proudly clutching a large green maple leaf above his head, as if it were an umbrella. As I let him into the house:
Me: You should bring your raincoat to school.
Him: Nah, I don't want to.
Me: Well then, how about we get you an umbrella?
Him: No thanks.
Me: So you're just going to get wet then when you walk home?
Him: Nope. I'm going to use maple leaf umbrellas. They are organic and eco-friendly!
I love that! He comes home wet and happy and ready to change the world. Go Kje go!
