Laurel's St. Patrick's Day essay from school:
"If I caught a Leprechaun and had three wishes, I would wish for many things. First, I would wish for a new eraser. I would because I need one to erase better. Second, I would like one piece of gold. I only want one so I could have something to remember him by. Third, I would wish for a diamond. I would like one because I do not have one. If I had all those things I would be very happy. By Laurel."
I would, however, like to point out that her elementary school had a hat day fundraiser today wherein all proceeds would benefit a children's cancer charity. The price to be allowed to wear a hat was $1. Laurel asked if she could donate more. She donated $3. So she's not that material.
Well, actually, she donated $2.75 because she forgot to take a quarter to school for popcorn, so she asked for change in order to buy popcorn. So maybe she's just a little bit materialistic.
But really, aren't we all?
