My son's school has been holding raffles for various prizes over the last week. $2 bought you 10 tickets.
Every day for the last week, my son would come home and tell me that "I didn't win a prize today, mommy". With 200 kids in his school there was practically NO chance at all he would win a prize, even though he had 10 tickets.
He didnt seem to be too upset (which I am pleased about). He is mature enough at 7 years of age (almost 8), to know and accept that he may not win anything.
Today was the last day of draws - the draw was for the biggest prize.
Today my second grade son won the top prize
The top prize was a lovely gorgeous and very large Teddy Bear.
This bear is huge. It is even bigger than my son was, as a new born.
I can't beleive my son won the top prize in the school raffle.
