School Boys at the Door: A Common Courtesty

I came to the doors of the school, ready to take my husband home for lunch.  About the same time, a few uniformed school boys came bounding around the building.  I tapped the doorbell, letting the doorkeeper inside know we all requested entrance.

We heard the welcoming buzz, and the boy nearest the door held it open for me, and all the boys waited for me to go through before resuming their lively path back to the classroom.

I appreciated the common courtesy, partly because of the respect they showed to me personally as an adult, but mostly because I was glad to see such young ones learning to be gentlemen.

Keep it up, boys!  (And parents, and teachers!)
