Good morning and happy weekend! I hope you had an amazing week. I know I did! Earlier this week, I started planning out a blog post on the secret to being lucky. But then 2 incredible things happened and I decided to blog about those instead. I will write about how to be lucky next week (if you are lucky 😂).
I had the opportunity to present my ideas and website to two different teams this week. Both times, I was completely shocked by what happened afterwards. There is a huge lesson to be learned from each experience, and I wanted to share those with you. It is funny how you think you are going to teach somebody something, and then you end up being the person that learns something.

When I first encountered the Sea Star Team, I was struck by what a good fit their name was for them. Sea Stars are kind of little, and really fun to watch. Sea Stars are certainly not the strongest, fastest, or most powerful creature in the ocean. That held true for this team too. They were not the fastest, most powerful team at the school. However they seemed excited about earning points for their team, and that made me happy. I never would have ever predicted what the Sea Stars could accomplish! By the end of the day, the Sea Stars earned over 50,000 points for their team, which made them the top scorers ever! I guess no one them they were too little to make a difference (and BIG KUDOS to their teachers and parents for that). They had a goal and set out to accomplish it.
