Lyndon has entered the coloring contest that our electric company sponsors for the past couple of years, but he hasn't won. He was beginning to get discouraged because he has entered numerous coloring contest at school, local library, and this one and until last year when he won 2nd place at a coloring contest at school he hasn't won. I have tried to explain that it isn't about winning, but when you spend hours deciding on the perfect colors and even start over a few times I can see why he couldn't decide if he should enter or not.
His congratulatory letter, copy of his entry, & his $25 gift card arrived in the mail today. Lyndon is over at PowPow & PopPops playing and I couldn't wait to call him. He was excited! It's not about winning but I am glad he realizes that his hard work and effort pays off as well. Congratulations Lyndon!
