Earth Day Brought Some Green!
Here Nate and Drew are after just receiving a nice certificate and their grand price winnings of $50.00 each to the BX (our version of Target'). The boys both wrote an essay on "What does Earth day mean to you?" We received a call on Friday afternoon declaring them each a winner in their age group. Jean and I are so proud of the boys! They have, as some of you know, been mowing 5-6 lawns per weekend and donating all of their money towards the adoption and trip to China. After earning their prize giftcards we made a beeline to the store to pickup their new Nintendo DS game systems. The boys have been saving for quite a while and could have bought the systems a year ago, but held off until they won this contest! Again, good job boys we are proud of you both!
Here is a weblink to an article written that mentioned the boys win, although Drew has been renamed!
