Polite Children

I saw the most astonishing thing the other day. I went to pick up my kids from school, and as I went into Youngest's first grade classroom, all the kids were getting their stuff out of their lockers and bringing it back into the classroom. One of the girls ran up to one of the boys.

Girl: Your locker is still open.
Boy: Oh, uh...(looks at the coat, backpack, and lunchbox filling his arms). Would you mind closing it for me?
Girl: Sure! (she runs off)

I kid you not, this is verbatim. These kids are six and seven years old, and this boy sounded like a polite, well-mannered adult speaking!! How cool is that? I thought it was pretty awesome, and had to share. :)
