Mina's Good Fortune

This is a picture of my wonderful, supportive husband Chris, and my sweet, goofy daughter Mina. I write today about the lucky streak Mina has had recently. Two weeks ago, she conned her dad into taking her to the Herberger's kids day activities. She had heard about it from her substitute teacher Mrs. Waechter and so they went to Herberger's (similiar to Dillards or Yonkers for those not from central Nebraska). She got to do all sorts of fun stuff and turns out she can guess a jar of jelly beans pretty well. She had guessed 200 beans and there were 214 in the jar. She won some fabulous prizes (I sound like I am on a game show!) and today we found out that she won the coloring contest too! So she got a very nice stopwatch and a book about being a record breaker.
No new jewelry yet, I have been working on my Girl Scout stuff. We have our end of the year tea party (similiar to the Blue/Gold banquet for Boy Scouts), and so I am working on badge wrapup and decorations for that. I also am working on camp registrations for summer/fall and summarizing the girls' activities so that I can start a data base on the computer for them. Never enough time, always too many things to do seems to be the normal for all of our lives. I am sure reader, that you feel the same pressures. We just have to be grateful for having so many blessings heaped upon us! Happy Tuesday!

Congratulations to Mina! And best wishes for success with the Girl Scout projects! I've said it before, and I'll say it again--those Girl Scouts are blessed to have the time and dedication you and your family give to those young women.
