I'm glad that Mallory got the gold star, but I feel like they should have given kudos to Morgan and the other kids who came close.
And I disagree that she only got the star because it was her birthday. She did work hard, and she's one of the youngest, if not the youngest, kids there. Remember, the other eight-year-old left in the first week because he said it was too hard and he was too young for this. But I also feel like it would be easier for her since her older sister is there.
As for the challenge, I feel bad for the sheep! D: They were terrified, and had these little kids climbing on them and grabbing them. I wish they could come up with better challenges that don't involve frightening animals.
