Matt and Mandy playing in leaves

Whoever catches that leaf is hero for a day!

Stand aside and let a heroine show you how it’s done!

I caught the prettiest leaf in the world! Here, you can have it. Let’s catch some more and I can show you how to make a crown.

That was fun!

I guess I know who the real leaf hero is.
