Tuesday, when Alisdair was away, (and Isobel was off school), I picked up the latest issue of The Lloydminster Source newspaper. Inside was a large advertisement/colouring competition for the Lloydminster Co-op. Apparently they have a "Kids Club" where children get a membership card that they can show at the grocery store bakery and get a free cookie whenever they are shopping. There are also special activities planned for members and online computer games for their exclusive use.
When I showed Isobel the picture, she said, "Another colouring contest? Well, it is worth a try!" I thought that was so funny, as it was only about a month ago she had entered another competition, in the hope of winning tickets to a theatre performance ~ and was disappointed when it didn't happen.
This time, in addition to joining the Club, Isobel can also win "one of three awesome prize packages" ~ they aren't any more specific than that, so much of the contest remains a mystery!
Out came the Crayola crayons. It didn't take long before the picture was ready to pop in the mail. The deadline is March 18th, so we'll be waiting for a while before we can determine if Isobel's luck has improved with this contest!
