Fingers crossed 9/31 #sol17

Our Family Literacy Night was slowly winding down.  Families had been reading by flashlight in tents.  Families had been playing games like punctuation toss and sight word tic tac toe.  It was time to draw some names to win some prizes.

Imagine the excitement of waiting to hear your name called.  The kids were all gathering around, waiting for me to pick another winner.  Everyone was eager and hoping to win.

I overheard one little girl say to her mom, "Cross your fingers.  But don't cross all of them.  That would definitely be bad."

Her name did not called.  Maybe someone made the mistake of crossing all of their fingers?!
