Praise the Lord for HEALTHY KIDS!!

Today was a day of celebration and complete
My sweet precious student that has been fighting leukemia since June CAME BACK!!!  It was such an amazing day!  I was nervous ~ like it was the first day of school.  I wanted everything to be more than perfect!  A wonderful educator from Children's Rady's Hospital came up to talk to my students for almost an hour.  She was fantastic!  Then we watched a Charlie Brown video about a little girl with leukemia.  My sweet little K was a pro!  She fit right in and you wouldn't have even known she has never been with us all year.  I had to take a first day picture of course.


She had to take the first day picture even though it's January...it was her first day.

I made her a sign to welcome her back...she's so precious!
I almost cried when I read this...she is so BRAVE!!
We had fun with some of the items from my New Years Pack as you can see.
I feel so honored to be chosen to be her teacher and am so looking forward to the few months I have to learn from her and encourage her.  God is GOOD!!


  1. How fantastic. I am so glad that she has fought and won. Its such an emotional thing for a teacher too. Here is to a fantastic 2013 for both of you :)

  2. Thank you for sharing. Her first day back in school will be a day she remembers forever! I am glad to hear about your/her special day.

  6. Awe, that's amazing!! She's going to have a great year!!

  7. What a special day for both of you! I had a student last year with leukemia as well, and she didn't start until mid-January. Her courage and determination was unreal. She has dealt with things that many adults have never had to even think of. To this day, she remains my personal hero. Your students will learn so much from her!

  8. I totally agree Aimee. She is my hero.. I am the perfect fit. I watched my sweet mom battle cancer. She lost her battle but I really have a heart for them...especially little ones. I'm so excited she's back with us I can hardly contain myself.

  9. What a beautiful story! Thank you for sharing it with us! It warms my heart to know you get to watch over her each day in class. You both are lucky to have one another.

    Must have been such a happy day when Kaelyn came back to school! I just love her most proud moment. Such an inspiration!


  12. What an amazing day that must have been. I bet the kids were so happy to have her back, and how blessed she is that you're there to give her reasons to smile each day.
