A Sweet School!

Yum

My school surprised me with an assembly today to wish me speedy recovery from my breast cancer surgeries. My favorite group of all time, the California Kids, sang me a song they had practiced. Then a student representative from each grade level said some words about their well wishes for me. The third graders presented, "The Top Five Things We Will Miss About Mrs. Steffes" and a fifth grader, Monica, read me a poem she wrote. Then six pink balloons were released in my honor (in the gym because we are environmentally conscious!). Kids hugged on me and teachers wished me well. It was a total surprise and I loved it!

  10. What can I say that hasn't been said already...It's all about love.
    They really love you!
    With all of that support and then
    all of the blogosphere behind you
    you will be better than fine.
    Take it easy for as long as you
    need to.
    I have had way too many surgeries
    and the one thing I get wrong...
    every time...is to rush back to
    my responsibilities. Please take
    your time. Be well healed before
    you hurry back to work and school.

  15. Hi sweet friend! Life is gradually getting back to "normal" for me so I'm hoping to be able to visit more often.

    I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you're healing nicely and will soon be back to all the things you love, including blogging.

    Hugs!
