Dear Friends:
June and July can be such an active period for families: kids completing another school year, graduations, family reunions, and weddings. We catch a glimpse of our customers' busy lives when they visit our shop, and we delight in hearing snippets of joy and personal achievement.

Such is the case of one young customer who celebrated a personal triumph when his mother brought him to J.J. Cardinal's to celebrate. Here's Joshua's story:

JoshuaHi, I’m Joshua P. from Grand Blanc. I just finished 2nd grade in Mrs. Brautigam’s class at Indian Hill elementary.

My Mom brought me to J.J. Cardinal’s to get a puppet because I got an “A” on every spelling test this year (the hardest word we had to spell was Tahquamenon Falls). Although my favorite animals are birds, I picked out a fox puppet instead. I named my new puppet Rusty because of the color of his fur. He sleeps in my bed every night. J.J. Cardinal’s is my most favorite store. 

Too cute, isn't it?
