"Mommy, I Cleaned Up the World!"

Ahhhh...the simple beauty and innocence of childhood. A couple of days ago, we had a beautiful, spring-like day here in Louisburg. Elijah had been playing outside, reveling in the gorgeous weather. After several minutes, he came inside and announced to me, "Mommy, I cleaned up the world!"
He had taken a little wagon and pulled it all over the yard, picking up stray toys, twigs, and trash. He had cleaned up the world, as he put it!!!
His comment reminded me that simple things, in the eyes of children, translate into BIG ideas.
