A Little Thing

Artwork from:
The first grade teacher had asked us to gather a few leaves from home and bring them to school the next day. I had been out sick so she let me pick some up from the playground.

We pasted the leaves onto colored construction paper and, with crayons at our disposal, we could decorate the project however we wished.

Of course, we all drew trees and pasted the leaves back where they belonged!

Gentle memories before hearts led and hearts broke.  Every child has done that project and almost every child pasted leaves back on a crayon tree.  And we were right to do it.
