Mini-Golf Adventure Excerpt:

Rogelio munched his breakfast with excitement. Today was going to be a fun day. Rogelio’s Dad was going to take him and his best friends, Brianna and Helen, to play a game called miniature golf.


The goal of the game was to hit a brightly colored golf ball into a hole by tapping it as few times as possible with a golf club called a “putter.”  Each hole had a different theme. Whoever took the fewest strokes to get the golf ball into all the holes was the winner.


“Dad, what color ball do you think I’ll get?” Rogelio asked.


“I don’t know, Ro.” Dad replied, using Rogelio’s nickname, “Ro.”


Rogelio loved it when his Dad called him by his nickname. It made him feel special.


“I think mine will be orange.” Rogelio guessed.

Today’s Meditation: Relax as you imagine you are a baby penguin snuggled close to its papa.
