Every year Paul's work hosts a safety calendar contest and any relative of a Layton employee can enter. Our older kids have entered when they were under 12 and now Jared and Kamryn have entered drawings the last 2 years. Last year neither one of them were picked.
This year they put a lot of effort into their drawings and Kamryn even started over on hers to make it better. Well, this year Kamryn got 2nd place in the contest. They have 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and then 9 more honorable mention to make up the calendar for the next year. It was pretty exciting that Kamryn did so well.
The director of safety and his assistant came to our house last week to present Kamryn with her prizes. She got her own Layton hard hat and safety glasses, the boring presents. And then they gave her an iPod shuffle, a $10 gift card to Toys R Us, and a big, soft stuffed dog. She was pretty excited with all of this. At first she seemed to like the stuffed dog the most but now that the shuffle's full of music she listens to it all the time.
Paul and I were worried with how Jared would handle it and if he'd feel really bad not winning. But he was a great sport and was happy and excited for Kamryn. And of course she's been sharing everything with him.
