The Book of Mormon Challenge

In my Beehive class we are doing a Book of Mormon challenge. Everyday, we have to read 2 pages, and if the class is all caught up, we get a treat at the end of this month. Ex: Cinnamon roll, Ice cream party, Movie night and more.
This month was a Picnic. On Sunday, they went outside, ate and had a lesson. My leader brought over my hand out and my lunch, since I was in Utah, and she said only like five girls were there! We have like 10 in our Beehive class!
Anyway, the lunch had grapes, string cheese, chips, a juice, gummys, and carrots. The lesson hand out was Reese's and Rollo's. Attached to them was a bag that had a story about a man who was on the beach and found some clay balls. He started throwing them into the ocean. He dropped one and realized there were valuable gems inside. He had thrown like 60 into the ocean, and had only 20 remaining. He cracked open the rest and took out the gems. He realized he had thrown thousands of dollars into the ocean.
In the end, it was about seeing people for what is valuable inside.
What to Rollo's and Reese's have in common with this? They both have valuable gems inside! (peanut butter and caramel)
While I am posting on this blog, I am 12 pages behind on the challenge. Tisk, Tisk, Sydnee!

Isabel missed the picnic on Sunday too. When she got her picnic stuff she didn't mention what the Rollos and Reeses were for, she just ate them.

I think it's so neat that you guys are doing the Book of Mormom Challenge.
