When I was a kid, every Fall I would go up to the Aspens with my grandparents. My favorite part of these picnics was walking with my grandmother. She and I would find the most beautiful leaf in the forest.
Finding the most beautiful one was a tall order while standing on a forest floor covered with golden leaves, but the way my grandmother reacted when I would show her my finds was enough to convince me that, indeed, I had found THE most stunning leaf there was to find in all of those leaves, and I could tell that I was bringing her a treasure, and that I delighted her with my amazing beautiful-leaf-finding skills. I felt so valued.
The kids and I had our own beautiful-leaf treasure hunt in the front yard the other day and we discovered an entire rainbow.
I wonder what colors of the rainbow your yard holds. I bet you have some talented treasure hunters who would be happy to help you find out.
