As Wallyhood neighbor Jared writes, there is a German phrase, “Tu Gutes und rede darüber” which means “Do good and talk about it.” Jared’s son Kyle did good, and Wallyhood is going to talk about it.
A few months ago, young Kyle was being dropped off at Interlake Childcare Center when he noticed his favorite teacher, Sherry Thomas, riding her bicycle near the school without a helmet. And this was a problem Kyle could solve. He decorated a bike helmet with a “careful selection of dinosaur stickers and reflective Cascade Bicycle Club stickers and gave the helmet” to Sherry as a gift.
Fast forward a few months, and Sherry was the unfortunate victim of a bike vs. dodging dog accident while she was riding her bike downhill… wearing Kyle’s helmet. Sherry was injured pretty seriously, but not her head. No head injury! All because a thoughtful kid cared about his teacher and did a good deed.
Way to go, Kyle! You’re a great neighbor and we’re glad Sherry’s ok now! Good job, buddy!
