Walking = toys.

Well maybe not exactly but my daughter won a raffle for walking to school. They hold these raffles often but my daughter NEVER wants to put her name in and I don't push her. Last week, as we were walking to school in the rain, the lady there told Samantha to get her raffle ticket. She didn't seem to want to but did it anyway.

Today, as I am walking to her class, I see her carrying something large. Huh? I asked her where she got it and she said she won for walking to school and smiled back at me. Ahhh! Well I'm sure she had a great advantage since people in my area rarely walk and even less when it rains. hihihi
I'm happy for her but at the same time, another toy? I just asked her Sunday morning to pick out some toys and stuffed animals to give away as a donation. She came back with 5 dolls and some little ponies and sunglasses.  At least more are going out than in. hihihi

A Bientot!

What a pretty little girl and such a sweet smile! I am guessing you live fairly close to the school since you are walking. It would be lunchtime by the time I got my kids to school walking! :) I am in your boat with the toy overload, sister! What can we do when they smile like that?? Have a great night!

Yup. We live 3 minutes away but even some of my neighbors drive. lol

I used to walk 20 minutes to school when I was young. Living in the city, you are just used to walking and using public transportation. Now living in a more rural place...yeah, I can see it taking forever. ;)

What a beautiful girl, and a lovely toy:) I'm glad she was able to give up some of her other toys to help others at such a young age:)
