    Mom and Dad have called Hannah and her siblings for a family meeting.

    Our Church leaders have asked us to prepare for emergencies. But we don’t have much extra money. We’ll have to make a sacrifice.

    We’re giving up cereal for one month. We’ll use the money to buy supplies. OK?

    What will we eat for breakfast?

    Oatmeal! We have lots in our food storage.

    Oatmeal? Blegh!

    The next morning

    Try mixing something in. I like raisins in mine.

    *sigh* OK …

    Day 1: Raisins

    Gross!

    Day 2: Banana

    Yuck!

    Day 3: Coconut

    Ew!

    Day 4: Berries

    Nope!

    Try this. It has apples, cinnamon, and brown sugar. It tastes like apple pie!

    Mmm, that’s good! I’m having this tomorrow too.

    I bought first aid supplies for our emergency kits yesterday. Thanks for being good sports. I know giving up your favorite cereal was a sacrifice.

    I guess all this gloppy oatmeal was worth it.

    Besides, it’s not so bad after all!
