Theresa's Mixed Nuts: What An Honor!

What An Honor!

Back in September I talked about my daughter's quest to raise the most money for her school trip to Washington. The deal was, the top 4 earners would have the honor of hanging a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on Easter Sunday. Mariah ended up raising $1,000 and was the top earner out of all the students. While I may have been disappointed we spent our first Easter without her and my husband, the pride I have for her accomplishment, and the honor of hanging the wreath, way more than makes up for it.
