Weekly Photo Challenge: Treasure


I have been saving my pocket change long before my daughter was born; she’s now four years old. Before I took her to Disney World last summer, I decided to sort through that pocket change to see how much I had saved. It was somewhere around a few hundred dollars. My grandma insisted I save some of the coins for my daughter instead of spending it. I had quite a few of those new quarters, nickels, and pennies that almost everyone likes to collect. She handed me a small stack of empty coin books and preceded to fill them up.

I had plans to sort through the change, wrap them in coin rolls, then put them into my bank account for a little extra vacation money. My grandmother had other plans and before I could say no, my had daughter joined us and started sorting the coins into piles. I showed her how to sort the nickels into the nickel pile, quarters in the quarter pile, and so on. Then my grandmother showed her how to press a coin into a coin book. Though it took us a few hours, we had fun, and my daughter got the opportunity to learn what coin was what. I ended up putting all the change back into the the coin container and placed it back into my closet, having not spent a cent of it yet.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Treasure


My daughter and I drove out to Georgia from Arkansas to visit with my sister and brother-in-law. They have an apartment with a beautiful view of the lake from their balcony. It had rained a few times while we were there, but what I didn’t expect to see was a rainbow forming out of the lake in front of us. I’m not sure I’ll ever see this again, nor capture it on film again, but what an opportunity to have witnessed it. Usually one would think treasure at the end of the rainbow when they see one, but not too many people see the end of the rainbow.
