This is well written and spaced correctly so that it is easy to read. I think that it is a little weak on topic. The descriptions of the setting are very good.

Very sweetly written.

The dialog doesn't need to be in italics, which are usually reserved for thoughts. Quotation marks alone do the trick.

I love the title--what a precious phrase!
Nice.
Watch out for run-on sentences (paragraph 5). Also, start a new paragraph when the speaker changes (second to last paragraph). Good job.

I like your story, it is sad and encouraging at the same time...reflective melencholy. It's a good one to re-write several times so that you correct the run on's and clarify the story. When that dreaded re-writing task is complete submit it somewhere for publication.
Children see and feel deeper than we realize. This is one of those times.
Being very into imagery I love the word-pictures you chose for this piece. I don't know if you're still trying to find your voice as I am, but from an objective viewpoint I would say you're going to be strongest in poetry and lilting prose.
